I noticed last week that Pearl had quite a pasty vent. I cleaned her up as best I could and made a vet appointment for her.
She hasn't lost any weight (Been weighing her every day), and she certainly has not lost any energy or spunkiness, eats and drinks like normal.
The vet couldn't find anything wrong after a full examination, and two different fecal smears.
She said that it could simply be an imbalance of bacteria, and suggested that I "treat" her with ACV. She gave me printed instructions on how to do this.
I'm using Brags ACV with "the mother", giving her a dose of 1tsp/2cups of water. She also suggested I do this with the rest of the flock a few times a week. (Pearl has been seperated from the flock, into her own hospital cage)
We have a follow up visit next week. She does seem to be a bit better now, but I'm wondering if there is anything else that I should be asking the vet to test for?
