I feel like I should just start a new post.. :really Anyway.. this is day two on the Tri-Hist. Good Lord, I got a HUGE jar of it! my vet said that was all they had, but I'm glad they had any at all.. He asked what we'd been doing and so, with a deep breath, I told him.. he took it all in stride, didn't chide me for not bringing her in and told me to start her on the Banamine again after a few days off.. he said she could do 5 on and 2 off.. so... She had a bad day yesterday, would only eat a couple of cookies and just nibbled at the beet pulp that I bought her.. She didn't even want the tea that I had made (I had run out of chamomile) so I left her in the hay room so she could pick at what ever she wanted and left the tea out, just in case, though I think the chickens drank more of it than her.. The injections are starting to bother her (you think??) but hey! She's been at 102 degrees for 3 days now! that is a good thing right??? Well, this morning, she actually looked at me like she wanted something from me.. so I gave her a few cookies and brought her into the milkroom. BTW- the cookies are made with apple pomace, rolled oats, cane molasses, brewers dried yeast, ground corn and dehydrated alfalfa. just in case you were wondering if they were chocolate chip or not :biggrin gave her a couple more and ran to the house to make her some tea.. I almost started crying when she drank some, not a lot but hey! it was an improvement.! then I made her fish out more cookies from her drink.. sort of like dunking for apples, but it's not so deep as to get her nose wet, but she does get some moisture in her mouth as well as a few herbs. I'm having to mix the tri-Hist with probios and ball it up to get it in her mouth but it seems to be helping. yippi. After all that, she went out by herself to the paddock by the barn to stand in the sun. Everyone else looked at her like she was crazy, after all there was still snow on the ground. :/ I wanted to ask.. when can/could/should I start her on feed-thru tetracycline?? Bump.. going in to town today, & just wondered if I should pick some up.. :?
