How much Tylan and how often were you giving her? A virus such as infectious bronchitis will not respond to antibiotics. MG (mycoplasma) can look like bronchitis, or it can cause a swollen eye and eye bubbles or foam, and may help treat MG. MG is a chronic infection, and can come back again. Tylan 50 injectable can be given orally 0.25 ml per pound 3 times a day for 5 days. If you weren’t giving enough of the medication, you could give another round. But if she is eating and drinking normally, and just sneezing, she may have infectious bronchitis which has to run it’s course over about a month.

The girl is always ready to eat no problem there here she is at the food dish so if it’s infectious bronchitis which she still have a breathing problem ?
