Hi there, I'm looking to print out a Tylan 50 as well as a Tylan 200 dosage chart to have on hand in my poultry med cabinet. I need to know how much to give per body weight with my Peafowl as well as chickens. I figured you probably have one handy or know it by heartūüėĄ thank you Kathy!

First thing is to not buy Tylan 50 in the first place, if giving injections, it is just too much volume.  Have on hand Tylan 200 and or Baytril.  Then again, there is a whole medical chest of things that one should have on hand for when it is needed.

NPIP # KS-412

Black Copper Marans, Easter Eggers, Mutts, ducks, and PEAFOWL!!!  India Blue, IB White Eye, IB Pied WE split Cameo, IB Silver Pied, IBBS, IBBS split Cameo, IBBS Pied, IBBS WE, Cameo, CBS (Oaten), Cameo Pied, CPWE, CSP, and Purple Black Shoulder. African Gray Parrots, a bunch of those dang guineas.  Oh, and honeybees, around 200 hives.  And two Great Pyrenees puppies.

If I were going to use it I would give these amounts orally.

 

  • Tylan 50 - 0.5 ml per pound twice a day
  • Tylan 200 - 0.125 ml per pound twice a day

I keep the Tylan 50 around for small chickens, and younger birds. I've never been able to do a injection so all medication's are givin orally. I'm always affraid im going to hurt the bird or poke something thats not ment to be poked!

Tylan can cause severe injection site necrosis, so that reason enough for me to give it orally.

Glad your other birds are okay for now. When you can, would be best to get some metronidazole (Fish-Zole, AquaZol, Meditrich, Flagyl, etc.) and some enrofloxacin (Baytril).
