    Hi I have some "hoarse" chickens and some that are sneezing. I picked up Duramycin 72-200 injectable today and was needing a dosage! Please help!

    idk about the injectable but you can call the manufacturer and they should help you figure it out. I did that when I was trying to figure the dosage for something and the manufacturer was very helpful. The water soluble kind you want to use 4 tsp per gallon, Duramycin is pretty weak.

    For respiratory symptoms like you described, Tylan 50 is recommended. 1/2 cc under the skin on the back of the neck. If the bird's over 5 lbs., give an additional 1/2 cc in the breast muscle. If you have many birds to treat, mix half Chlortetracycline powder with half Gallimycin powder dry in a jar. Add a generous teaspoon per gallon of water for 14 days. Look up Chronic Respiratory Disease.

    I got Doxycycline oral from my vet 2.7 ml for a 5 lb RIR hen that has been suffering severe respiratory symptoms. She seems to have responded well . Not out of the woods yet but the rattle and sneezing has abated and she is eating and drinking after not eating for several days. I am hopeful.
