I grow turkeys BIG-6, following the recommendations for growing. I do prevention of diseases regularly, as well as disinfection. Grew up with perfect minimal mortality until the age of 5 months. and diarrhea began. And all those individuals that had pronounced symptoms of the disease, otsadila and soldered Metronidazole, Furasolidone. I mean Gymtomonosis. But they gave no results. How to protect the rest of the livestock? (Maria)
Of course, the fact that you have drunk your turkeys with Metronidazole and Furazolidone can be the cause of the disease. In principle, if the bird had been suffering from a histomoniasis or something similar, these preparations would certainly help. Although you could not stand the full course of treatment in 3-5 days. Then a one-time dacha, of course, will not have any impact. But if the course is sustained, and diarrhea has not stopped, then perhaps your pets just have problems with the digestive tract.
To cause such a disease could a sharp change of diet, poor-quality food or something else. Then you need to treat specifically diarrhea.
How to proceed?
If it is a simple diarrhea, then first you need to understand what caused the indigestion and eliminate the cause. The problem of Levomycetin will help to quickly remedy the situation. It is bred in water and the bird is soldered for 3 days every 4 hours. The dose is approximately 1: 4-1: 2 tablets per head. For the purposes of prophylaxis, healthy turkeys can be drunk. Tetracycline, Furacillin, Furazolidone and Sulfadimine can also be used.
You can also drink broth chamomile or a weak solution of potassium permanganate (manganese). The broth is prepared as follows - a tablespoon of dried chamomile flowers poured 200 ml of boiling water. It is all infused and cooled to room temperature. Then they need to water the turkeys. Pour broth or solution can be in the trough for greater convenience. Drink so for about two days, both sick and healthy birds.
Remember, whatever you treat your wards, be sure to endure a full course of treatment in a few days. Otherwise, there will be no positive effect. If you doubt that they have correctly identified the disease, then it is better to call the vet. After all, we are not guided by inspection, but only by the symptoms described by you. And you might not notice something, miss something or not find it important.
