Barrow sounds like he needs to be on CPAP machine

Post by Mispiggy » Thu Nov 08, 2018 9:53 pm

Have a barrow that sounds like he is stopped up in his nose and when breathing sounds like he needs a cpap machine or is a COPD patient. He is eating and drinking fine, stool is a little stiff. He is around 75 pounds. We have given him 2 rounds of 4cc-nuflor and 2cc dex. Looking for other options! Help?!
Thanks!

You could try switching the antibiotic to Draxxin or Excede. Other than that, make sure there's good ventilation (not too much dust) where he's staying.
