    Welcome to BYC. Respiratory diseases such as MG, infectious bronchitis, and others can cause sneezing and labored breathing. I would also look around to see if you have good ventilation, and avoid dusty conditions, wet moldy areas, and ammonia odors which can increase symptoms. Tylan, oxytetracycline, and Gallimycin are some of the drugs that are commonly used to treat symptoms of a respiratory disease. Some of these diseases can make carriers of a flock for life.
