    I was perscribed Batryl to treat my ill flock of bantams. The vet said I could find it at any tractor supply store but none of them carry it or have heard of it. I can't find it any where but I bought Tylan instead because it seems to cover the same things but I am scared to give it to the flock until I know for sure it is safe and I can not contact my vet until thursday. And also the medication is being ministered via drinking water. So pleas if you don't mind helping me I'd greatly appreciate it.

    I think the spelling might be baytril. Sorry I don't know how else to help.

    If you are dealing with a respiratory illness, tylan 50 injectable works well. The injectable can be administered orally as well as injected. Orally, dosage is 1/2cc for standards and 1/4cc for smaller birds. Dose once a day for 5 days.
    If you're injecting, same dosage as orally, inject into the breast muscle alternating breasts each day but not in the same spot. Inject once a day for 3 days.

    Thank you so much for that, It was very helpful of you. It's a sinus/respiratory infection according to the vet mostly sinus infection. So I'm hoping this should help.
