Can I use Duramycin-10 as an antibiotic for bumblefoot?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have cleaned the wound several times and wrapped it with neosporin a few times and also used a betadine sugar mixture paste, but the foot is still slightly swollen.

will the duramycin help fight the infection?

or

can you tell me what duramycin-10 is good forother than CRD?

thanks!

2 RIR's, 1 NHR, 4 BO's, 6 EE's, 1 old english bantam, 1 Bantam Cochin, and a bunch of fun and eggs! I'm a hair, make up, antique car, cooking and chicken keeping type of girl. Sounds like a crazy mix doesn't it??

That is for respiratory. For wounds (bacterial infection) you need Penicillin. Injectable is preferred.
