Re: Pain meds for injured chickens???

I've used 1 low dose aspirin (81 m) crushed with a spoon and shaken in about a litre of water.  Administered by dropper, up to 5 ml at a time.  I think the hen could have had more, but since she was eggbound I didn't want to push my luck in case the shell broke inside, cut her and cause more bleeding.

I use aspirin as well. I had a roo that was suffering from bumblefoot that kept reoccuring. He was limping pretty bad. I would give him the aspirin 10 minutes before working on his foot. It seemed to help ease his pain and it made him much calmer when cleaning out his infection.

Thankfully, he is finally better.
