    I had a sick younger bird sent out for necropsy, no reportable dieases etc, but found pnuemonia. What is the best drug for this besides baytril?

    who did the necropsy?
    I am unsure what you mean by "pnuemonia" >>> was this a lower respiratory infection or do you mean "brooder pnuemonia " (aspergillosis > this is actually a fungal infection)

    Quote:The state of Fl Dept of Ag & Animal, they just said pnuemonia but these were 6-8 month olds, young but not little. I thought Mareks because they started with a limp, but none was found in any of the birds then or before, and that was a suspicion. They also had a secondary cocci, but I have been dosing all my flock with Amprolium 3cc per gallon of water, 7 days. Used sulmet too before. I am at a loss. [​IMG]
