Short video clips of a sick hen with a floppy comb, diarrhoea and a distended abdomen that was too full of fluid to feel much else. If the fluid in the abdomen is outside the intestines the condition is usually referred to as Ascites. You are shown clear straw coloured fluid dripping from 19 G and 20 G needles inserted into the abdomen. Over 20 -30 minutes more than 500 ml was drained out of her abdomen. It then became possible to feel a large multinodular irregular mass in the abdomen separate from the gizzard. This mass was consistent with a probable lymphosarcoma involving the intestines, part of avian leukosis complex. This disease is partly due to or associated with the presence of a viral disease. Without intervention the hen would only have a very short time to live. If intervention and appropriate health support supplements are started in time it is sometimes possible for the tumour to shrink and/or disappear. She was started on daily patented products contained zeolite and a purified extract from a highly selected strain for Agarigus mushroom as well as a patented glyconutrient powder based on stablised Aloe Vera. A diuretic will probably also needed to be given intermittently to control /prevent more fluid accumulating in the abdomen.
