    Tylan Soluble Powder​



    I found out how much one teaspoon of Tylan Soluble Powder weighs. [​IMG] According to the veterinary formulary I have it weighs 2.5 to 2.7 grams, which means one teaspoon will have 2500 mg to 2700 mg of tylosin.

    1/8 teaspoon = 312 mg to 337.5 mg tylosin.
    1/4 teaspoon = 625 mg to 675 mg tylosin.
    1/3 teaspoon = 833 mg to 900 mg tylosin.
    1/2 teaspoon = 1250 mg to 1350 mg tylosin.

    Chickens, NE indications:

    • Administer medicated drinking water for a single five-day period in broiler chickers. To assure all birds receive the intended medication, only medicated water should be available. These practices should be followed to assure both food safety and responsible antimicrobial drug use in chickens:
      1. Use in flocks exhibiting signs of a necrotic enteritis outbreak, for example, increased mortality and lesions characteristic of necrotic enteritis upon necropsy;
      2. Administer the full dose and dosing regimen once medication is initiated;
      3. Use of Tylan Soluble or another macrolide is not advised if additional therapy is needed beyond the original course of medication.
    CRD indications:

    • Administer medicated drinking water for three days; however, medicated water may be administered for one to five days depending upon severity of infection. Treated chickens must consume enough medicated water to provide 50 mg per pound of body weight per day. Only medicated water should be available to the birds.
    Turkeys:

    • Administer medicated drinking water for three days; however, medicated water may be administered for two to five days depending upon severity of infection. Treated turkeys must consume enough medicated water to provide 60 mg per pound of body weight per day. Only medicated water should be available to the birds.
