If so how much
Why would you? It is much faster acting and more effective when used as directed (as an injectable). GI juices often wreak havoc with meds that are designed as IM drugs. Fortunately, this particular drug can be used as a PO med, but why would you?
What are you using it for? What is the weight range on your birds?
You might want to get yourself a kitchen scale and start tracking their weights. Not positive, but I think the oxytetracyline dose is about 50 mg/kg, which for 5 day old chicks is probably about 0.01 ml per chick (note that I wrote 0.01, not 0.1). IMO, chicks this young are way too small to dose correctly with LA200.If so how much
