I have a hen that has had bumble foot for months. Many rounds of other antibiotics, debridements and foot care, nothing seemed to work. The bumbles on her foot grew so large like the size of marbles. She is healthy otherwise, laying well and not limping so I kept up with the care. Luckily I read Laura Cole’s blog about the medicated fish flakes. I ordered the product and hoped for the best. It did take a couple of weeks before the bumbles started to shrink. So happy I found this product!
My fish devour this food. Just wished I could get my kids to like taking medicine this much!
I read about this on a website about birds it was recommended for bumble foot so I’m trying it
It’s a great idea so far my goose isn’t to interested in it
The red antibiotic flake was liked immediately by both of my sick bettas one with dropsy, . The metroplex antiprotozoan one they didn't like but would take a bite if I soaked the flake first in seachem garlic guard.
I purchased both gram-negative and gram-positive flake foods even though I planned on only using the gram-negative one just in case I needed it later. Some of my Glofish Tetras have been bloated for quite a while (over a month), but not pineconing and acting completely normal so I wasn't sure if this was dropsy or not. I also noticed one of my Chocolate Gourami's had a wound or white spot just adjacent to its eye about 0.33 cm wide in diameter and was starting to get slightly larger each day. I used the gram-negative flake food and within 3 days I noticed the white spot was diminishing by 25%. By the end of the 10th day it was completely healed. Chocolate Gouramis are very rare and sensitive to water quality (I do 50% water changes/week) so I am very pleased with this outcome. My Glofish Tetras are still bloated, but act completely normal still and I am starting to think it was just because they are female and gravid or just overweight since they always quickly get to the food first before everyone else. The other male Glofish are not this way. My Angelfish, Samurai Gourami and other fish also had no issues and all loved the food. It was pretty easy to feed them this food. I have recently purchased the recovery food as well. It is coming today and I will start feeding them that tomorrow.
