    Anyone know if we could still get Gallimycin 100 injection? I've been looking online for a good few hours now and have not came across any available source. Anyone know of a place where we could possibly be able to purchase it? Thanks fellas.

    Look it up on the farad.org website; some forms aren't approved for laying hens. Mary

    Well, I have been reading lots of good review about it being one of the best antibiotics for BRD and Coryza so I'd just thought I might give a try. I've use tylan50 and la200 with success but I just don't like tylan50 for leaving burn skin on my chicken, thats all. I notice you have great experience with chicken health and midical what do you think, is it worth getting it?

    I noticed the same thing with Tylan the one time I used it... it caused a nasty, necrotic spot in the muscle, so I won't use it by injection again.

    Gotta be honest and say that I know nothing about Gallimycin, but am curious, so will look into it. Keep in mind that I have no medical training, but will post back here if I find any good info.

    Do you have a vet that you can work with? It's okay if you don't, but if you do, talk to them about what sort of antibiotics would be good to have.
