Dosage for Oxytetracycline???? **NEW VIDEOS OF SICK CHICKENS ADDED PLEASE HELP** - Page 10

post #91 of 97
I just searched another thread that suggested tylan 50. This seems to be serious so get antibiotics asap. Look up dosage for which ever you get . Please keep us posted. We're here if you need us. Also separate her and any other chickens with these symptoms.

I used oxytet for a while and it did not seem to do anything for mine.  i guess it depends on what you have, and we may all have something different.  but when I tried the tylan on my sickest hen, she was much better within 24 hours.  It worked for me but may not work for you.  I did not have any foul smelling mucus, so we may not be dealing with the same thing. I have not had any testing done, so I have no idea what we have sadly.  I really do hope that you find something that works for you, because I know how discouraging and depressing it can be to not know what to do to help your birds feel better. Are you also giving them electrolytes?  I found that made a lot of difference for my birds too. I really hope you get them to feeling better :hugs hugs from across the miles, I know how frustrating all this can be!!

How well one drug works will depend on the bacteria. Here are lab reports from a bird with a respiratory infection. Note that any drug with the word resistant will not work. Both these reports are for the same bird.

 

Report #1

 

Report #2
