    Tylan50 injections or Tylan Soluble Powder, Gallimycin (erythromycin), and oxytetracycline for the water are some good respiratory drugs. Aureomycin is used more for intestinal infections.

    Most are easy to find online at stores like Jefferspet.com if you Google the name of the drug. Also try other farm stores. Most carry Duramycin10 which is tetracycline.
