How much Tylan should I give ?Injectable - Page 2

Thread Starter 

From the link you provided it says use Tylan but it doesn't give a dosage ..do you have any recommendations?

There must be a dosage chart somewhere on the site. If you can't find it see if you can edit the header of your original post and ask that direct question.

I found a link the says 1/2 a cc for 10 days. I am just nervous I don't want to traumatize her any further..or overdose her.

I wouldn't worry about an overdose as long as you are close (most antibiotics aren't an overdose risk).

 

Half a cc orally? Injected? Mixed in water? I have never used Tylan.  Like I said change the subject line to ask a direct question as others here will know the proper dose.

 

If it is oral I would try to tempt her by mixing it with a bit of scrambled egg.

Looks like .5 to 1 cc is correct: http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/86782/tylan-injection-how-do-i-do-it

 

Sounded like a lot to me but apparently your calculation was correct, and overdosing on antibiotics is pretty unlikely.

So I was wondering if I had to do another injection and how long to continue or should one be enough?
