    Never heard of it. I ended up getting Tylan 50. What is the dosage? Thanks for the help.

    The dose for Baytril is 15-20mg/kg once a day for five days.

    They are two *very* different drugs. I've only used Tylan once and I gave it at 40mg/kg as a shot in the breast muscle. 40mg/kg is .8ml per 2.2 pounds.

    I will be giving it orally, not through a shot. I don't enjoy the thought of injecting a few dozen birds. LOL. So, how many teaspoons ( or mg ) per gallon?

    If you are treating for Coryza, Tylan is not going to do it. Sulmet, like Casportpony said, or Sulfadimethoxine (albon), or known as Di-meth.

    Thank-you Dawg53

    He also recommended 1/2 cc/ml Tylan 50 once a day for 5 days. Just give it orally. "give your rooster 1/2cc tylan orally once a day for 5 days. Pull his wattles down and his mouth will open, then shoot the liquid in his mouth and immediately let go of his wattles so he can swallow the liquid on his own and not aspirate"

    Baytril...if you do not have a way of getting this from a Vet or able to find this somewhere without a prescription....if you have human Cipro antibiotic..one or two pills left from a prescription, I have the dosing and mixing for this. Baytril is serious stuff and will knock whatever it is out of your bird, fast.

    Haunted, see? My source (twincitiespoultrysupply) , does not list Coryza as something that Tylan treats. But there may be another source that does. It's pretty confusing, LOL

    Is Baytril worth having on hand?
