She goes hours sometimes without making much of a noise then has these fits. Today is day 3 of the Tylan without much improvement. Still active and eating and everything is clear. She still feels very thin to me, especially compared with the other. She got a special treat of earthworms in their pool last night lol. @JadeComputerGal is that what your duck sounds like?

    I've never heard that from a duck before almost like she has something stuck. I sure hope someone else can help where [email protected] is today she is really good at helping.

    When you pick her up did you listen to her chest air sacs?

    Yes I did and she is mildly wheezy. She does whistle from her nose when she breathes but I cannot see or feel anything stuck in her mouth or throat. She has me worried. None of my other birds are showing any signs of being ill.

    The Tylan 50 dose I would use if I were going to use it is 0.5ml (25mg) per *pound* orally twice a day. That dose is based on the amount of powder that one would give. Tylan might treat mycoplasma (MG and MS) and Coryza, but it won't treat a viral infection, and it won't treat many of the other bacterial infections they could get.

    Has this duck ever been de-wormed?

    Yes she has been de wormed but it was in the spring. So, I should up the dosage of Tylan to 3ml? I bought the injectable stuff in the bottle from TSC. Won't be an issue to give her more, there's plenty lol. She was pushing the larger duck away from the food tonight which is the first I have seen of that since I got rid of our drakes. The larger female seemed to take a more male role between the 2 of them.

    You have Tylan 50, right? Not Tylan 200?
