Sally, 10 month old BO, has been sick since 4/06. There are many nice people on the forum who have suggested different remedies for what I think is gapeworm. I have treated her 2xs with Ivomec Eprinex, .25 cc applied to skin between the shoulder blades. Sally continues to decline and I am amazed she has made it this long. She extends her head and gasps each time she breathes. She has no other symptoms except now she is getting weaker. She is eating very little. Sally is in the basement by herself, she has a plate in front of her with scrambled egg, yogurt and greens. She also has regular laying feed, a paste of laying feed/water and water with acv. I entubated her last evening and gave her 10 cc of pediolyte. I know the electrolytes went into her esophogus. Afterwards Sally gasped excessively, shook her head violently and even had spasms. I held her for 2 hours and she finally settled down. Sally is still alive this morning and looking a little more bright eyed. She is still gasping with every breath. She only had a couple of beak fulls of yogurt. Every time I try to hand feed her or dribble fluids on her beak she really starts gasping and having difficulty breathing. I have Vita-Pro B conc and VetRx on order, the shipment should have arrived Wed but hasn't been delivered - tomorrow for sure. I want to give Sally every chance to live. Should I try to give her fluids sub-q? If anyone has any suggestions, please respond. There are no vets that know anything about chickens in our little town.
