oxytetracycline dosage?

post #1 of 4

If I wanted to give this to a chicken with a possible respiratory issue, what is the water to power ratio? The directions say to mix at the rate of one ounce per gallon.  I was going to make this for one chicken and give for 7-14 days plus the entire flock even though flock has no signs.  Should I increase the dosage that has the labored breathing?

It's not approved for use in laying hens, as far s I know.  One ounce per gallon is 1/4 ounce per quart, fine for one bird.  Good luck,  Mary

Sorry, I am not sure. Hopefully someone else will comment and know.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
