Actually, it's not. It only treats a few bacteria, whereas Baytril will treat many. If you want to treat mycoplasma gallisepticum (mg), mycoplasma synoviae (MS), or necrotic enteritis (NE) from clostridium perfringens, then tylosin (Tylan) could be used.

x2 to what Kathy said AND with Tylan, be aware that serious muscle damage can occur at injection sites.

Used to use Tylan on our deer.  Probably have a bottle or two around but have searched out the Baytril on sinus infection and it seemed to be the drug of choice (which it worked well on what I needed it for)

Many of these sinus infections are E. coli and/or pseudomonas, and Tylan won't treat either. Baytril won't treat all E. coli and all pseudomonas, but it is about the only thing we can try without going to a vet.

If you have a good relationship with your vet, see if you can buy a bottle of Baytril 100 (the injectable kind).  It's expensive, but it lasts quite awhile.  It can be diluted with distilled water and given orally.  I use a clean (sterile) needle to withdraw the Baytril from the bottle and then I put it into another container to dilute it.  Then I measure that out and dose the bird.

 

If you have a GOOD vet, even a non-avian one, you may be able to get help with the sinus infection treatment.  Some vets are quite good at it.  If you read up on it, getting the pus out (or the hardened pus) can be a bit challenging.  :hide

In case you are interested in seeing a swollen eye due to pseudomonas

 

 

And this after cleaning the infection and gunk from the outside of the eye.

 

 

And the best antibiotic is Zactran @ 0.60ml per adult bird, good for five days and can be repeated if necessary after four days.
