Hi, welcome to BYC! :frow

Sorry to hear about your issue and for your losses. :(

From the research I did... looks like it is caused by Salmonella Gallinarum, a gram negative bacteria. So make sure you are using the correct antibiotic for gram negative strains and not gram positive. Sorry, I am unfamiliar with them.

Seems as though the BEST way to treat is to depopulate ANY who test positive via the standard serological test for Pollorum. Or if it were me... I would depopulate the WHOLE flock! :hmm

And start over with known clean birds.

From Merck, a leader in avian medicinal and health stuff...
"Treatment of infected flocks to alleviate the perpetuation of the carrier state is not recommended."

What is your location? How many birds have ya got? This is a disease that passes through eggs to chicks so any you hatch may be infected from birth. Wish I could make a better suggestion... but depopulate would be my suggestion to someone I considered a friend. :hugs

As far as I can tell, it cannot be cured without depopulation. :(

Or getting each bird tested and keeping only those that test negative.

Thing is while you have a lot invested... better to ditch the problem and start over with birds that won't be sick and needing treatment for the rest of their days... It is keeping your whole flock down and effecting their quality and YOUR quality of life. Nobody wants to be always stressed about sick birds. It takes the fun out of poultry raising.

What I am suggesting is extreme. BUT *may* be your ONLY true route to recovery. And would be how I would go about it.

Good luck! :fl
