    I am looking to see what the withdrawl period is when using LA200 in chickens and turkeys. I do not have an emergency right now I just simply cannot find this info anywhere. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    The clarify what is the withdrawl period for chickens and turkeys for both eggs and butchering. Unsure if they're the same.

    Note the residue precautions at the bottom of this page:
    https://www.drugs.com/vet/oxytetracycline-hcl.html

    It says to not butcher turkeys within 5 days of using it, and it says not to use at all in chickens, but I do know that plenty of people have used oxytetracycline in the past.

    Hola Habanero! This is not about withdrawal time, but a general FYI for all that as a long time alpaca owner I have learned from excellent veterinary sources:
    LA-200 hurts like hell! Try using BioMycin-200 instead which utilizes a different carrier for the oxytetracycline and hurts a LOT less. Just ask any of my alpacas :yesss:
