Vetrx and Oxytetracycline

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a silkie hen with a slight sneeze. I'm treating her with Oxytetracycline currently and I was wondering if it would be safe or not to give her some Vetrx, too.

VetRX is a topical, yes? If so, you can use them together. I would not put anything other than the oxytetracycline in the water.

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 85

 

Package weighs 181.5 grams and has 10 grams oxytetracycline.

10 ÷ 181.5 = 0.055, which means it's 5.5% oxytetracycline, 94.5% filler

One gram  = 55mg

One teaspoon weighs about 3 grams which = 165mg x 5 teaspoons = 825 mg

The 800 mg dose for one gallon = 5 teaspoons (825mg is close enough)

 


 

 

 

 

This package weighs 280 grams

Package contains 102.4 grams oxytetracycline

 

102.4 /  280 = 0.37 , which means that it's 37% oxytetracycline and 63% filler

370 mg per gram

One teaspoon probably weighs 3 grams, so it's 3 x 370mg = 1110 mg per teaspoon

The 800 mg dose for one gallon = ~3/4 teaspoons

 


 

 

 

102.4 /  135.5 = 0.76 , which means that it's 76% oxytetracycline and 24% filler

760 mg per gram

One teaspoon probably weighs 3 grams, so it's 3 x 760mg = 2280 mg per teaspoon

The 800 mg dose for one gallon = ~1/3 slightly rounded teaspoon

It can be used topically or orally. I will use the instructions for the topical treatment. Thanks!
