Hi You need to get some Duramycin (tetracycline) from your local farm store. Directions for mixing is on the package. Put it in their water for 7 days and DO NOT stop before the 7 days as it will not have a chance to kill off all the bacteria. Even if they are better in 3-4 days keep giving them the antibiotic water. Good Luck!

You'll need to make a fresh batch every day too. The pkg says it's only good for 24 hrs.
