    My new girl "Sandy" has a swollen face and is very lethargic... I think it might be MG but was not able to find any Tylan or Denagard locally, I did order some from QC Supply just not here yet... I have been giving them some antibiotics that one of the local feed places suggested as well as I have been trying to clean her eye and face with warm water every day when I get home but I don't think she is getting any better... Any suggestions?

    Looks like antibiotics is your only bet. Substitute her water with ACV or tonic, I have heard of feeding baby vitamins too as a boost. Tylan sounds like it could be your best bet at getting her better. I have read previously about sinus infections causing this. Good luck.
