Respy issues! FAO Zoundz

Post by katherine on Wed Jan 11, 2012 10:01 am

We seem to have a very busy forum right now! Grin

I suddenly seem to have problems Shocked Forz was put on baytril by the vet yesterday for a chesty thing and now Switch seems to have something too. He was fine yesterday and by all accounts this afternoon when my mum checked on them (he was in the hammock this morning so I couldn't see) but this evening he's doing the side sucking thing Forz is but with added noise, as lot of sneezing and sort of what sounds like hiccuping from inside. I've whacked him on the same dosage as Forz straight away and will of course phone the vet tomorrow but I am worried.

I cleaned out the cage yesterday and wonder could it possibly be because I had to buy some shavings that were much finer than I'd normally use because it was all they had that wasn't straw? I think it's more likely that he probably had it anyway and the stress of the vet visit and the clean out probably knocked his immunity back enough for him to display symptoms, but still, could the bedding be a factor?

I'll start a new thread for the other issue as it's totally unrelated.

I would say the latter - that the stress has knocked him, and knowing his brother isn't good. Do let Ky know about this as well - as she'd want to be kept informed. Send her a message on the book of the face.

I would say same dose as Forz, as you're doing, and watch the others, it could be that they've caught a virus? It's not overly likely - but it's not impossible, after all, they're in a new country again, and may have encountered something they don't have any real immunity to.

Just to update that the boys are back to normal again, though we're continuing with the course, obviously Smile

Thank goodness - hopefully it was a blip, or a mild virus.

Great to hear Katherine that they are on the mend, I can imagine you getting a fright and being so anxious about the boys, here's hoping they will continue to improve day by day, It never ceases to amaze me, that on this forum, what affects one affects all, Steve
