Empty crops will gurgle, kind of like our stomachs do.
@Yorkshire coop , a size 14-18 french catheter should work.
It could well be an injury. From the evidence I have, they have had a real go at her!
Thanks Kathy I will check that out. It's dark here now so I've just had a go at giving her more fluids but she doesn't want any. Not taking the drops from her beak now Don't know if to try again before I head to bed or just leave her be now she's quiet and settled :/
Kim, so sorry to read about your pretty Polish girl. I hope things look better in the morning.
Sending good vibes!
So do I, she's one of my favourites
Will leave her now untill the morning. Fingers crossed I can go pick the tube up first thing
Kim, this looks neurological to me. Start with how you found her this morning....flat out and having difficulty breathing. Could be some sort of stroke or possibly an encephelitis (brain swelling) As you know I am dealing with a stroke patient right now....they can develope nervous ticks and lose mobility.
If she were my bird, I would get her under heat, on baby aspirin in case this is stroke or heart trouble and maybe some Amoxicillin or Doxycycline for possible respiratory and or brain swelling bacteria. I had a female quail contract a mosquito virus, EE, and she had weakness, brain swelling and nervous ticks for 8 months until she finally threw the virus and survived.
How much aspirin and amoxicillin? I have four 250mg amoxicillin capsules. I can get baby aspirin in the morning.
I tell you, it never rains put it pours with my animals
I don't know about aspirin, but the amoxcillin dose listed in Plumb's Veterinary Drug Handbook is 125 mg per kilogram orally twice a day. 125 mg/kg is 57 mg per pound. If she weighs close to 700 grams it might be okay to give her as much as half a capsule twice a day.
