In my opinion,gout generally occurs in layers ,due to mycotoxins.Hence,better to check the feedingredients for the presence of fungal contamination and replace such material with go0d,quality material and add ammonium chloride in feed at the rate of 2 kg per tonof feed for one week.Gout due to I.B is not common as in all farms vaccine schedule is strictly followed forthe disease.

I am currently managing a Barnevelder hen with what I believe is visceral gout. The symptoms are acute in onset and there is a noted uraemic "odour" where there has been a collection of excreta on the feathers. I am trying a probiotic and have also used low dose cortisone as an oral preparation for the last three days. The bird is showing some improvement in strength however has not really improved in appetite. Is there something else I should be doing to overcomke the disorder. I do have access to allopurinol (100 mg tablets) so could use this. There is also the other thought I had and that was to utilise a "sports electrolyte" mixture such as Hydralite. I would be interested to know if I should be looking at something else?
