Re: Sick EMU

I was a little hopeful this evening when I got home from work. He was picking at the ground. So, we brought some food out to him and he picked at it a few times. But, when we did our tubing he just seemed crappy again. He seems stronger but, I'm really not sure. I did give him some prednisone and we...

Re: Sick EMU

Thanks again, so if we keep doctoring him and forcing electrolytes and fiber and get him stronger he may beat the worm. I have prednisone at home. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and last time I was.prescribed it I didn't take it because I hate taking that stuff. Maybe I could look up a dose for a dog a...

Re: Sick EMU

Thanks so much again. Lots of great info. A couple questions, will the parasite pass from bird to bird? How is it transmitted from bird to bird? Do they all have the parasite because they live together? What is the best place to give them.the shot? Thanks so much.... Eva.

Re: Sick EMU

Is the Encephalitis passed from bird to bird? So is the Encephalitis created by a parasite that the bird may have eaten a bug/slug in the summer/fall and now we are seeing the effects?The previous bird that passed in November did the neck thing but, Gaston the current sick one has full control of hi...

Re: Sick EMU

Pat & Nicophorus, Thank you both. Would the Encephalitis be happening now? Does it stay dormant and come out in the winter? He's still very strong as far as trying to get away from us when we're giving him his tube of fiber/electrolytes... he still hasn't stood up. He doesn't have diarrhea or an...

Re: Sick EMU

It's very hard to find literature on and my managerie worm. Is it the same as the meningeal worm? I've tried to look it up on Google and there's really nothing out there. Thanks again... :icon-frown:

Re: Sick EMU

Hi Pat... I just checked the post and saw your reply. So, will this worm spread through beedding, water troughs, and feed. Are we doomed to lose all if this is the worm? I have no.problem giving them all ivomec. It most likely will be giver orally. Should I give the sick bird another dose? We just g...

Re: Sick EMU

Thanks Pat. Our home is built on the side of a mountain and the field the emus are on is a hill. I see that you are from PA, where in PA are you from and did you draw blood to test for the Menagerie worm? When you say treat them all with Ivomec can we give it to them orally in a grape like we gave G...

Re: Sick EMU

@ Nicophorus, we are very rural and we do have raccoons, I did read the link about the baylisascaris, it very well could be something as such. He tries to get up now and basically falls over and has no strength. This can be a result from dehydration, malnutrition, worms... it's very challenging when...

Re: Sick EMU

Thank you all again... My husband spoke with some farm owners and members of the AEA and they thought he may have gotten something lodged in his gizzard. I'm very unsure of what is wrong with him. He is very alert not acting like something that would be neurological. He is very weak and isn't eating...

Re: Sick EMU

Thank you both for your replies. We've called all vets in our area with absolutely no success. We live in rural PA zip code 15536. Nobody in this area knows anything about Emus. The first two that died show no signs of anything wrong, lost a ton of weight and then they lost their balance. Prior to.t...

Sick EMU

Hi, I'm new to the board but, I hope that some of my questions may be answered. We live in Central PA and the winter has been a hard one. We purchased 10 EMUS last year around this time and are new to the EMU Farming. We've lost two birds this year and they were coming twos. They were perfectly fine...
