    This is Jappy, we have had him in isolation for the past week because hes had a respiratory problem, we have been treating him with tylan 50 1 ml in his mouth each night. he has been slowly getting better and tonight we gave him his last dose. about 10 minutes after we gave it to him and put him away for the night he started making these horrible noises and that was 30 minutes ago hes still making them, heres a few videos of him. whats wrong? what can i do for him?

    ughh the videos havent "processed yet" they should be up soon but can anyone tell me what might be wrong? its like a gasping for air sound and then a shreiking sneeze sound every few minutes

    Could it be possible that the medication went down wrong and went in his lungs instead of his stomach. Just a guess. Hope he's ok.

    Be very very careful with respiratory illnesses....they can easily wipe out a flock. Sounds like the medication when down into his lungs.

    Quote:I know weve had coryza before it was horrible our whole flock had to be culled, what he has doesnt smell at all though it was just a small cough here and there and a sneeze hes completely recovered from his respiratory thing and now this [​IMG]

    So if it is just the medicine went down wrong is there anything i can do for him? he seems better this morning none of the shreiking sneeze stuff anymore but he still is having a little trouble breathing, is there anything i can do to help him or will he just get better on his own?
