    I have a Splash Barnevelder here that started coughing/sneezing real bad two days ago and I am scared to loose her. I gave her Teyracylcin dissolve in water but after 24 hres she is not doing better and she doesnt eat



    I tryed VetRx around the nostril area and under wing and a bit on the roof of her n

    ...but that didnt seem to do much. I am wondering . allthough I cant feel anything , if that could be something stuck in her pipe ?

    The problem was Gape Worm and this forum was pretty useless

    Can you try to make sure she is drinking water....even if you have to spoon feed her water.
    Dehydration can and will kill.

    I'm sorry you feel this way, but you should keep in mind you are the one with a sick bird that you can physically see/touch/hear...We, on the other end of the internet, can not....which makes it very hard to offer advice, but we still try to help and direct you in the right direction.

    I hope you are able to treat your bird and hopefully the rest of your large flock before it's too late.
