    I have a chicken on Duramycin and her egg got mixed up and cooked for breakfast this morning, will I surely die? [​IMG]

    I know you are supposed to wait 14 days after the end of her treatment but I am not sure what the dangers actually are. Any words of encouragement?
    I will be more careful to separate her eggs, that's for sure.

    I'm no expert, but keep an eye out for symptoms of poisoning like vomiting, being lightheaded, and fever. Basically anything out of the ordinary. If you do experience a significant symptom, call poison control.

    Are you allergic to tetracycline? If not, you should be fine. [​IMG]

    I'm not allergic, so I have that going for me!

    You'll be fine. BTW: Duramycin has a 21 day withdrawal period after last use.

    What some folks dont realize is that there are other soluable powders available that will treat the same things as duramycin does, with much less withdrawal times, examples; aureomycin and tylan soluables...there are others as well.
