Tylan and Egg Withdrawal?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

My chickens have been prescribed Tylan soluble in water for 5 days.  The vet seemed non-committal about egg withdrawal.  This web forum seems to have lots of conflicting information about the appropriate withdrawal time.   I looked it up and the FDA says that in the US it should not be used on chickens that produce eggs for human consumption. Period.

 

It's clear that a lot of backyard chicken keepers use Tylan. Is the FDA statement just for commercial egg producers?  Anyone have a vet's recommendation for egg withdrawal?

I haven't used tylan but after using tetracycline, my vet said to not use eggs for another month after the end of treatment.

My chickens just got prescribed Tylan powder in their water as well and the Vet was pretty specific about not eating the eggs for 6 weeks after
But most of the info I found here is contradicted.
Maybe I should call the company that manufactures Tylan and see what they recommend and why
