Is this the same rooster you posted about last week?Hi, what is the best injectable medicine for a respiratory infection in rooster?
Yes, same fella. He’s gotten worse and now has foul smell around his face area too. I tried giving him the meds in his water but being separated from his flock depresses him so much so that he refuses food or water!Is this the same rooster you posted about last week?
if it is, then you received good information and dosing instructions from Eggcessive in her post HERE
You can find Tylan50 at most feed stores, it can be given orally instead of by injection since Tylan can cause necrosis at the injection site - it has to be given several times a day.
If you want to give up an update on his condition with current photos and more information about his symptoms we can give you more suggestions.
Were you able to get the infection cleared from his ears?
Does he have infection in the ears - do you see a discharge?Yes, same fella. He’s gotten worse and now has foul smell around his face area too. I tried giving him the meds in his water but being separated from his flock depresses him so much so that he refuses food or water!
I washed his beak and face with warm water, cleaned it with bedadine, put some neosporin on it and then gave him some liquid Motrin that I have on hand.
I’m thinking shots would be easiest and quickest way to get results at this point.
This almost sounds like Coryza, possibly Infectious Laryngotracheitis (ILT) or a combo of both diseases. The reason I said "almost" is because other birds should be showing symptoms as well. So far you havnt seen symptoms in other birds, have you?
Eggcessive nailed it: It would be best to treat with a sulfa drug in combination with tylan or baytril.
Roosters are more difficult to deal with when they are separated from their hens, I can relate. In this instance, you're doing the right thing and hopefully your other birds arnt and/or wont become infected.
I’ve got him in a crate on porch facing the coop so that he can see his girls.
