    One of my hens is either sneezing or coughing. I got some Terra-vet 10 but only gives dosage for 25 gals of water. I only have 4 chickens. Any suggestions for dosage of a gal of water.

    Divide the total by 25 to get the amount to add to 1 gallon of water. Good luck.

    Well I found one place on package that says 400-800 mg of Tetracycline per gallon of water. Have no clue what a mg. Would be nice if it was in CC's. I missed this part on first reading. Just a country girl thank you so much for any help you can give me.

    Thank You all for the help on Terra-vet dosage. Treating chickens now. I started this morning. I am not going to keep any eggs. How long should I not keep their eggs? [​IMG]

    Terra-vet 10: Do not slaughter for food at least 4 days after last day of use. If the chicken is good to eat after the 4th day of last treatment, so are the eggs.
