    Yes, I have. It must be mixed with water and contact the sinuses on the way down.
    I wish you luck, I just lost about 15 birds to Mareks.
    I am in the middle of an emergency right now, will look for the doses and come back on.

    OK found it.
    1 tablet, crushed with 1 Tablespoon distilled water.
    Mix in a glass or plastic container.
    Let dissolve, drip 8 drops onto the birds tongue.
    Be sure the bird rubs his beak together, as the solution must touch the sinuses.
    Do this every 12 hours.
    It is very likely the symptoms will get worse before they get better.

    I hope this works for you.
