    I have been giving my Cuckoo Maran hen Duramycin-10 for about 5-6 days, I have mixed with water and added vitamins. This doesn't seem to help her URI to much. She is still sneezin and a wheezin. She seems fine otherwise, eats well, no weight loss, no other symptoms. She is an avid free ranger. My question is, I would like to start giving her Tylan 50 orally, do I have to wait a few days or can I go right into giving her the Tylan 50 tomorrow? Today she was still drinking the water with the Duramycin in it. Thanks for any advice

    You can go ahead and start the tylan, 1/2cc orally once a day for 5-7 days, no more than 7 days. Hopefully you'll see improvement by the 3rd day. Injecting would be better, quicker acting.
