I have a 1 1/2 yr old rooster that has a throat infection. his throat is very swollen and he cannot eat or drink. He was at the vet yesterday and got steroid shot and antibiotics. He has gotten dehydrated and I want to give him sub q fluids but my vet is closed today and no one will sell me the fluid. does anyone know what I can use for this? or how I can make my own?

You *might* be able to use saline for eyes, but I don't really know... Search the web. Your other option would be tube feeding Pedialyte, but only if you're sure you could do it without aspirating your roo.

This site has some very good info on how to do it:

Another thought... A cat/dog rescue place would probably have fluids and they might be willing to give/sell you some. If you lived near me, I'd give you some.
