They needed 3 treatments and the vet used an injectable Ivermectin for them.
Yeah, he's only had one dose, and it was by mouth. Is the injectable Ivermectin better? I have to call in tomorrow to see when I can take him in for a second dose, so will post about that when I find out.

No problem, Julie, all good! Come to think of it, they have been outside, but for no more than half an hour, but that was last year. Plus all the trips to the vet for Peatri. But that begs the question, how does Peatri not have any symptoms? I just pray it wasn't anything that we did.




Update: Pepper seems to be doing ok, although his weight is still an issue. The low fat pellets it seems are not helping either. We do what we can for veggies and fruit everyday, but sometimes we can't find stuff that's not gross or moldy, or getting ready to rot. I'm not giving my flock sub par food. Just to be clear, they don't get fruit everyday, more like once in a while for that given the sugar content.

I can still hear the crackling, and every once in awhile the whistling. And he's still vibrating from time to time. Any ideas on how much eucalyptus oil to add to what I think is a 2-3qt pot of boiling water, for steam?

Also, I was wondering if they can have blood oranges? They have a much low acid level than regular oranges, so I don't see why not, but I wanted to make sure before I give them to the fids.

2-3 drops of eucalyptus oil for 2-3 qts of boiling water is sufficient.

Yes, the flesh of blood oranges are fine, no seeds or peel.
