    The link is not working for me. Does anyone have another link to dosages for B complex, E, Niacine and PolyVisol? He's a 7 month old silkie. He has been like this for 3 days. His legs move when he is picked up and he will flap his wings. He shows no signs of an injury. He does seem to have lost some muscle. He eats, drinks and poops fine. Any advice would be appreciated..

    Thanks! I saw that site. I'm giving him B complex, vitamin E and PolyVisol. This is day 2 of treatment. I'm doing some physical therapy too. I might make him a sling to get him to stand and move his legs more. Any other advice is much appreciated!

    So I made him a sling. He seems to like it.
