Hey guys/gals, I haven't been active for a long time and it's only now that I'm in desperate need of any help. My 3 y/o Black Spanish hen hasn't been eating properly for about 2 months (I know neglected) but she was eating but not the right amount as usual. Yesterday on my birthday I decided to take her to the vet and get checked, since she lost some weight and was breathing open mouth. She barely got her droppings to clear her bum area, so all her feathers were covered. As I was cleaning her feather before taking her to the vet I realized a swelling reddish ring around her bum. Didn't think of it as anything that bad, so vet checked her breathing a bit gargling heartbeat was fine. Stool sample came clean, as the vet was about to clear us with some antibiotics just in case I asked her about the swelling around her bum. So the cat felt the area and realized it was puffy like fluid like. She took the hen in a different room and got a handing help to stick a needle in her abdomen and guess what? When we brought her in they weighed her and she was 11.2 lbs The vet took out 2 lbs of liquid out of her abdomen. She's now 9.2 lbs and boney. We got the antibiotics and painkillers for her, we are force feeding her and giving her electrolytes as well. So my vet sent me an email with the first part of the bloodwork results, basically she's lost all her muscle mass cause she's been using it to survive. Now my question is, has anybody been in this situation and if so is it possible for her to bounce back and survive this ordeal? She's been our pet for 3 years and we are not ready to give up on her. Any help in what we can feed her would be great. Thank you in advanced.
