Hello everyone. I have a white Bantam Silkie Hen who was looking unwell a few weeks back but then perked up again. At the beginning of this week she went down again, I took her to the vet who looked her over and suggested coccidiosis and gave me a course of antibiotics. I began treating her five day course but on day three she had got considerably worse rather than better - she had and HAS now lost the ability to stand or walk. Upon realising this I really have her a good looking over and found she was crawling with tiny tiny white lice - the vet had missed this. I immediately diatom'd her the only other thing I had to hand was advocate Cat spot on treatment as it was late at night... As she was so bad I took the punt and gave it to her. Today is the day after this horrid find and she is much perkier, I have seen no live mites on her, have bathed her and been using a syringe to give her water. She has eaten a small amount of mealworms and layers meal on her own. She is definitely brighter and she seems aware and quick moving with her head but she still cannot walk, she sometimes tries and flips herself over/topples over when she's sitting. Is this something that she can recover from or am I putting her through unnecessary misery? Can anyone offer any advice? Thank you!
