    I have a pair of very sick turkeys, I have tried Sulmet but they are still sick. Runny eyes, sneezing and very swollen faces. They are both eating and drinking. What else can I do for them. I have them separated from the rest of the animals. I have not seen any improvement. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Why is everyone's turkeys getting sick? When will it stop?

    What is Sulmet? Why do you give them that? Just curious. I'm no expert but it sounds like a respiratory problem that may require some Tylan. I'm sure some of the experts will chime in soon. Did you a do search for respiratory problems in the Turkey section. A lot of threads there with "What To Do" information. My tom has been sick with a terrible respiratory problem. Tylan seems to be working for him.

    sulmet is a sulfa type drug, it cleans out the gut, can be used for cocci.
