Any and all suggestions are welcome, the tylan did not clear it up so I stopped after 3 days.
Well, bubbling eyes are usually a sign of a respiratory illness. There are plenty of those too, so pinning it down is very difficult. You may just have to try a different antibiotic. If it's viral, that may not help. I think a good vit/mineral supplement in his water combined with medication may help him fight this off. If you want to cover all the bases, why don't you try some oil of oregano on him? I know you can't believe everything you read on the internet, but oil of oregano is said to be helpful to combat bacteria, fungus, yeast, parasites and viruses. Get one that will mix fairly well in water (I have found some that just solidify when they hit water) and try him on that for a while. I've been told it's bitter so you may have to get them use to it over time. Or mix with a bit of water and dose him with it directly in the crop. I don't have any idea how long they would have to take it though or what the best dosage would be. I'm thinking it may be more of a long term treatment but I would try a couple of weeks at least and see if there is improvement.
Heres a link if you wish to read more about it:
