I took my turkey (Lurkey "Tom" Turkey) to the veterinarian on Friday April 15th and he finally got to come home today (the 18th). Apparently he had some type of bacterial infection in his digestive system (?) Before (nice an healthy) At the veterinarian (ugh pardon this picture, I didn't know it was being taken and I look terrible from the stress ) Also, does anyone know what those spots are on the blue of his head? Is his head sunburned? They're sort of scabby. I forgot to ask the vet when we left today. I'll have to take some after photos in the morning, it's twilight now. Here's a list of what treatments and such he received (does this seem like a normal amount of procedures?): Also, if anyone can tell me what some of these treatments are (ex, 'sub q fluids', 'ae 270 cbc' and 'lactated ringers') are that would be lovely 4-16-11 1 Routine Exam 1 Lactated Ringers 1000ml 1 Sub Q fluids 1 Hand feeding 601gms 4 Cephalexin 500mg 1 Standing DV 1 AE 270 CBC 1 Med waste fee 1 Hospitalization 1 Avian Chemistry (in house) 1 Med - Injection fee 1 Gram stain 4-17-11 1 Hospitalization 1 Sub Q fluids 1 Hand feeding 601gms 4 Cephalexin 500mgs 1 Med - Injection fee 1 Lactated Ringers 1000ml 4-18-11 1 Sub Q fluids 1 Hand Feeding 601gms 4 Cephalexin 500mgs 1 Med - Injection Fee 42 Cephalexin 500mgs (take home prescription) I have to give him 2 pills of Cephalexin in the morning and 2 in the evening.
