    My neighbor gave me a gosling the h goose hatched out because she abandoned it. It's about 2 weeks old. I left her with a friend when I went out of town a I came back to a raspy gaspy gosling. I can hear every breath she takes its squeaky. She had no food or water when I got home. And some of the food had stayed wet and had an bit of mold I cleaned out the whole cage and gave clean food and water. Vet rx only helps for half an hour then she's raspy again... help!

    I'd take her to a vet ASAP. She has some kind of respiratory infection and needs penicillin/antibiotics and preferably a painkiller. I don't remember what kind of penicillin, and I have no idea what dose - it depends on her weight. My gosling weighed 11 pounds when she got sick. She got better within a few hours after visiting the vet, and she recovered completely.
