Re: What do you have in your poultry 1st aid kit

You can get Tylan at G and E Pharmacy in Edmonton w/o a scrip.

I have Polysporin eyedrops and ointment, Oxy-Tetra-A, Super Booster and Oxine bit need to buy Epinex.

Re: What do you have in your poultry 1st aid kit

Polysprin, never used it.
Stop Pick, utterly useless, but have a jar anyway.
Honey, way better than Polysporin.
Eprinex. Totally worth it.
Extra No Pest strip.
Piperazine.
Custom made homeopathic cocktail in a Crown Royal suspension. I use some on a sick chicken then take a belt myself.
Axe, for the hopeless cases.

I also have a styptic pencil to stop small cuts from bleeding. Or the rare broken nail.

Honey! That sounds interesting. Makes sense with all of its antibacterial properties! What have you used for?

Re: What do you have in your poultry 1st aid kit

What is the Super Booster and where can you buy it?  Also do you have to get Eprinex from a Vet?  Vets round here won't sell stuff unless the "examine" your animal first ie charge you $85.00.  And no one sees chickens.

Re: What do you have in your poultry 1st aid kit

I use honey on open wounds. Used it on a chicken I did crop surgery on. ANd about styptic pencils, one really ought to dab one on a shaving nick before  ever using it on an unsuspecting animal that cannot scream! THose things are BRUTAL!

Re: What do you have in your poultry 1st aid kit

Isn't cornstarch supposed to work for that stypticating  (without the screaming)?

Re: What do you have in your poultry 1st aid kit

Haven't tried it on a chicken, but we use cayenne pepper on small cuts to stop the bleeding and deaden the pain (and yes I've used it on myself, and so have my kids). Yes it really does stop the pain - I know it sounds weird. I've used it on my dog when she cut her foot on the ice, and when we clipped a nail too close.

Honey is great on burns (after washing and cooling the injury first), and on other open sores. My husband recently put some on a small burn he had (after listening to me go on about its benefits) and said that it stopped the pain immediately.


Buckeyes and Americaunas. Hopefully bees again in a year or so.

Neo Cholr is from UFA, Tylan is a vet prescription drug, so you would have to talk to a vet you know and get some. The germe zone I picked up on line but I have seen it in Co-op as well after I ordered it. Basically it is an all purpose liquid that helps to stop transmission of disease in the water, not a drug, not sure really what it is? But claims to work. Also works as a wound dressing on picked hens. But stains reddish brown so watch your fingers when using it. And clothes as well.

From your discription I would wager the main ingredient is probably Iodine.

Due South Animal Hospital in McKenzie Lake, Calgary will see chickens.  They used to own a chicken farm in South Africa and are both outstanding vets (even if they couldn't save Teriyaki's life, they made a darn good effort.)

Re: What do you have in your poultry 1st aid kit

I have most of what Hidden River has but I also use honey as an antibiotic and tylenol for it anti inflammatory and the reduction of pain properties. Lou

Re: What do you have in your poultry 1st aid kit

Good post that needs to be kept busy, smiling.  I have a very small first aid kit, but have stuff around, easily accessible.

Things I have are:

Colloidal silver water, use for every injury, kills bacteria, basically kills what the bacteria need to "breath"
Honey with propolis suspended it, for extra power, speeds healing, bacteria cannot grow in the low pH of honey
Eprinex (get it at the vets, cow country, so they don't even ask questions)
No pest strips
Tylan, got it at a Pharmasave that carries all kinds of livestock remedies
Piperazine
PoulVite, always give to new chicks for 4 days
Bandaids (for me, smiling)
Scissors
Qtips
Eye dropper and vial
Knife
Stop pick, which really doesn't work (had a chick once who had its bummed picked, put it on and the chicks picked it even more, had to separate her)
Preparation H (in case I ever come across a prolapsed bird, hope not)
A cage in case of separation needed immediately
Bottled water

Think that's all I have really handy, beautiful days, love, peace and healthy wishes, CynthiaM.
