Re: Giving oral medications HELP

So now I want to list at least the few diseases that have weight loss despite eating, vomiting, and sporadic loss of appetite as some of their main signs/symptoms...These include viral, bacterial, and fungal diseases, along with parasitic infections...

-Bacterial Hepatitis
-Avian Tuberculosis
-GI Yeast Infection
-West Nile Virus
-Avian Goiter/Thyroid Hyperplasia/Dysplasia

There is another parasite that I cannot remember the name of that commonly causes weight loss despite eating, vomiting, and picking of feathers. I'll go look it up and add it. I doubt that's Gracie's issue, but it's signs/symptoms are exactly those...

It's called "Myialges Nudos"...Carried by flies and certain mites...
"Dance Like Nobody's Watching".

Re: Giving oral medications HELP

Yes he has touched on it and they are supposedly testing for several this time around. Also testing that various enzyme levels are correct.
