Tylan 50 injectable, ORALLY??

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

I have seen in a post that someone gives their chickens the tylan 50 injectable orally. Can someone please confirm this? I just bought some to try on my little girl who has been coughing/sneezing and wheezing for 2 months now. Nothing else has worked. I live in New Hampshire and unfortunately they don't sell needles and syringes. I only have 1 needle and syringe and I don't want to use the same needle to inject it over and over. If i can use this orally with the same outcome that would be great!

You can pull up the amount needed and squirt it onto a piece of bread and feed it to her.  Make sure to use only the amount of bread she will eat so that she gets the entire dose.  Dose for 5 days.

 

Are you sure it is bacterial in nature?  I would think she would be much worse now if it were.  Have you thought about fungal infections as a cause?  Give the Tylan a try and if it doesn't help, try searching out causes/cures for fungal respiratory infections.

 

You could also have a vet do a nasal swab...that should be able to give you the answer to what is causing the symptoms.  Is anyone else showing symptoms?

She doesn't have a runny nose or watery/puffy eyes, just a cough and sneeze off and on and a wheeze every now and then. I have thought of that, but oxine is very expensive and I would have to have it shipped. Then I could only use a very fine mist because I don't have a humidifier, only a nebulizer and that won't work. I have tried metronidazole, doxycycline, and vetrx and nothing has helped. The metronidazole helped when this first popped up, but I used a half dose because she is so small and it came back, then I used a full dose and nothing.

 

Would the dose be 1/2 cc a day for 5 days? She is only 1.5 lbs.

Then the dose would be .25 ccs per day...that is the bantam dose.

 

I used a nebulizer with oxine and it worked extremely well.  I put the sick chicken in a pet carrier..covered with a towel.  Hooked the nebulizer unit onto the front.  Nebulized for 20 - 30 minutes twice daily.  It worked exceptionally well!

 

If all those antibiotics aren't working, I think you are dealing with something other than a bacterial infection.

Okay, so how would I use the oxine in a nebulizer? It only allows a small amount of liquid. Should I return the tylan 50? It was $13 and I really don't have any money idunno.gif. I get payed at the end of the week.

Give the Tylan a try.  I can only give advice.  I can't say for sure that it won't work. 

 

I filled the little resevoir up to the top and let the nebulizer run for 30 minutes each treatment.  It worked well for me.

 

I don't want to stop you from treating as you see fit.  I can't diagnose.  I can only use what I know to help out.  You could have a bacteria that has grown resistant to other drugs and Tylan may work.  However, if you have other chickens and they show no signs/symptoms, it would be hard for me to believe that this is bacterial.  Someone else should have been sick by now if it were bacterial and contagious.

I don't remember what amount of oxine you add to a quart of water...it is on here somewhere.  It is a tiny amount.  You mix the solution with water and then put it into the nebulizer.  Do not use full strength!

Okay well her friend that is inside with her is not sick, she was before but after the first round of metronidazole it went away. So I can't figure out whats going on with teh toher one. She was outside though and it rained and was pretty cold, and she was soaking wet. It was also very hot and humid the day before. So i'm going to go with trying oxine, I will return the Tylan and try it if the oxine doesn't work since I can get that right down the street. I will have to order the oxine.

Hun I would go with the anti fungal treatments first. I know the oxine is expensive but you will have a gallon for years.

Try some vites and electrolytes in her water. Make a mash with a small amount of garlic, oregano (or italian spices), a small amt of live yogurt, scrambled egg, and small amt of ginger root, and some of her food. She will love it. Put some Apple Cider Vinegar with the Mother in her water too. And when you have the money I would get some Oxine.

I actually have done the mixture of those foods and she gets sav-a-chick every couple days. Also have done the apple cider vinegar, but i'm glad you mentioned ginger root! I have been trying to find if it was safe. I returned the tylan and ordered the cheapest oxine I could find. I only ordered a quart size, it was $21.00 with shipping which isn't terrible. Just ahve to budget for the rest of the week haha.
