    Need to give my bird an antibiotic since I can not get rid of her bumblefoot: here was my other thread:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/1155527/i-thought-bumblefoot-but-not-sure-now

    Someone suggested penicillin pro-pen-g. Is that the correct one to use?
    My tractor supply has these :
    http://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/search/penicillin


    I think I want this one: http://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/product/pen-aqueous-500-ml-durvet-drug?cm_vc=-10005
    Can someone confirm this is what I should use and the rate I should use it at per lb of bird?

    But they also have this:
    http://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/product/combi-pen-48-100-ml-bimeda-antibacteria?cm_vc=-10005
    But I do not think this is the one I want.


    Can some confirm? I only have a Tractor Supply near me, so what they have are my available options.

    Thank you in advance!

    They also have this---which is what a lot of people use. I do oral.
