    Yea. The bloat makes me a bit worried but its not bad and she is pooping and eating normally... I think the Epsom salts will help. Kanaplex is taking care of her mouth, which is most likely bacterial.

    I'm glad she's doing better! The bloat worries me, but I can't think of anything else you can do for it right now.... The Kanaplex should help if it's bacterial, and the Epsom salt should help if it's just fluid retention. (And you already know about using something like API General Cure if it turns out to be parasitical.).

    Got home, just forgot to update you. She is doing fine and looks to be slowly healing, but her bloat went up. As of now I have her in kanaplex, lots of ial, and 3tsp/g of Epsom salts.

    Not sure. I left town for a couple of days and she started showing improvement when I left on Saturday, I'll be back later today and will let you know how she is.

    I have kanaplex, ial, and Epsom salts (she was bloated) in her water right now. Not sure how many meds I want to throw at her, hopefully kanaplex will work... I'm thinking it's columnaris.

    If it doesn't clear up, and you really want to hit it from all angles, you could use Kanaplex, Furan 2 and API General Cure. The General Cure will help if it's fungal.

    Mouth rot. I'm thinking I'll start with kanaplex and add Furan2 when I can get it.
