    Morning! I have a porcelain that has been sneezing for a good month now. He has only a little bit of a wet nose. He is eating and drinking and going out just fine. Just sneezing quite a lot. I have a few others that do it but not nearly as much as him. I changed their bedding from straw to pine shavings, but he was sneezing before I did that. Do I need to put antibiotic in their water? I put some of the tetracycline in for about a week but no change.


    Any help would be great!

    For sneezing, I would use Denegard. You put that in their drinking water for about a week to ten days, and they will be fine. It's a liquid you can buy online or sometimes at your farm store, and it's great because they won't get used to it, so it stays effective. And you don't have to throw out eggs.

    I'll have to look up the doseage.....I forget! It's around $50.00, but you get a huge bottle of it, and it lasts a long time.
