    How do you do it. What do you mix the Tylan 50 with. What else can I do for watery, bubbly eyes.

    From Doc Brown's site:

    I would Nasal Flush the bird using Oxine or Tylan 50 with sterile water. I would then apply either eye drops or eye ointment to the eye several times daily.

    Directions for treating sinusitis with swollen eyes

    nasal flush using Tylan 50 or la-200

    using 12 cc’s of sterile water add 2 cc of Tylan 50 or 1 cc of la-200 and then flush each nostril( using a syringe with the needle removed ) with 3 to 4 cc’s twice per day for 5 to 7 days. The birds head should be held down so as not to swallow to much of theTylan solution.

    Follow the flushing with vet-rx squirted liberally into each nostril. Do this after each flushing.

    Using the eye ointments is a critical part of getting the swelling to go down. Use the eye ointment every 2 to 3 hours during the day if at all possible.

    You should use it at least twice per day. Start in one corner of the eye and lay down a small strip of the eye ointment from one corner of the eye to the other corner of the eye.

    It may also be helpful to flush the eye once per day with an over the counter human eye wash that is boric acid based and then proceed with the nasal flushing as described above.

    The eye washes are readily available in all drug stores.

    It may be necessary to use more powerful antibiotics to cure this swollen eye problem if you are not making progress


    Tylan 50 or la-200 - 2 to 3 drops directly into the eye twice a day followed by the eye ointment twice per day for 5 to 7 days

    Ciloxan eye drops given at the rate of 2 to 3 drops in the affected eye 2 to 3 times a day for 5 to 7 days


    Ciprofloxacin Eye drops or Chloramphenicol Eye Ointment available in the online store on this site.

    This should take care of the problem.
