    Hi, my Rooster has been making a weird noise in his throat, like when you have a bad cold and breath out and it makes a purring noise, he is eating fine, drinking fine, and seems to be feeling great. What is this noise?

    Thanks

    It could be stridor from having something in the airway just partially blocking it--something like a piece of food, mucus, or a foreign object. If it doesn't clear up in a few hours, then it might be a respiratory infection.

    Could the siven dust I put on him have gotten in his lungs?

    It's possible, but I have used it many times without any problems like this. Are you seeing any runny nose or watery eyes? Any sneezing or coughing?

    Sorry that I have been off the computer all day. Did you take him to the vet? How is he doing today.

    He is the same. The gave us and antibiotic for him, but they didn't say if it should be refrigerated, what do you think?

    The label of the medicine should say if it should be refrigerated. What did they give him?
