I have a 1 yr old white comet rooster that started sounded hoarse 2 days ago. He is eating, drinking and acting normal but is now wheezing. Needless to say, I am very concerned and want to treat him promptly and correctly.
After much research I want to treat him with Tylan 50 (unfortunately Tylan 200 isn't available at my local Tractor Supply). This is a good sized rooster, but is very skiddish of people and prefers not be handled. As such, I am hesitant to inject so I will administer it orally. I've read on here some people saying to administer 1cc of Tylan 50 but I've also read on here some saying to administer 1/2cc. I'm not sure what to do and don't want to overdose or under-dose. Also I believe this has to be administered for 5-7 days, but I wanted to confirm that as well.
In addition, I just ordered Oxine which will arrive on Tuesday and I will be spraying that as well. I've gotten some herbs to mix into the feed (basil, dill, thyme and cinnamon), and have put VetRx on his nostrils and under his wings. I put either apple cider vinegar, oregano oil or garlic in their water as well.
Any other suggestions? I want him to get better asap! His name is Jaws and he's just the coolest Rooster. PLEASE HELP! THANK YOU!
