    Oh my, hoping someone can please give some insight. I have a girl that I started treating with Tylan 50 for what seemed to be a cold or some sort of respitory issue. She seems to be getting worse. Today I gave her the 3rd dose of Tylan and for the last 15 minutes, she has been wheezing and seems to be gasping for air. Is is possible I got it into her lungs? With the help of my daughter, we lifted her head all the way up and put the dose down her throat.

    It's possible it went down her windpipe. Unfortunately there's not much that can be done. Hopefully she'll be okay.
