    Ok. I have decided to give my girly some Antibiotics. I called my local Feed store and they have in powder form:
    Tetracycline
    Terramycin 10
    & Oxi-Tricycline(sp?)

    I am also considering a Multi Vitamin for her water.
    What can you all recommend?

    Symptoms:
    Some nasal discharge
    Cloudy Pupils/Partial Blindness
    Lethargy

    Still eating and drinking, but separated form the others for now. Poop is fine.
    Thanks.

    If I put an antibiotic in her water, can I put some vitamins in the same water as well?
    Are any of the Antibiotics I mentioned any good? I am a newbie to chicken doctoring.

    THey are all the same drug- Tetracycline. I would put some Terramycin ointment in her eyes as well as what that other person said. (Duramycin is also the same drug, Tylan is different). [​IMG]

    What about mixing Vitamins in her water with the Antibiotic? Would this be ok?
    ALSO: Would a Triple Antibiotic Cream from Rite Aid be the same as using Terramycin?
    Contains:
    NEOMYCIN/BACITRACIN/POLYMYXIN

    Tetracycline isn't going to do any good for a respiratory illness, which is what you are seeing the symptoms of.

    Go to TSC and for $20.00 they have an opthamalic eye drop that works great I first clean them out with saline solution and then put the drops.

    Quote:What are my options for a respiratory illness? My FEED store has limited options so as many as you could list would help.--So I know what to look for...
    Duramycin? Agrimycin?

    Those are both Tetracyclines, so no. Tylan would be good. You can buy it online. Yes you can mix vitamins in w/the antibiotic. Go online and look for Tylan 50 injectable. Triple antibiotic (BNP like you asked about) can't hurt. Good stuff. [​IMG]
