    Hen has been this way for a couple weeks. Getting worse. Ive used Tylan 200 gave her 2cc. It looks a little better. Is this correct dosage? Anything else we could do?

    Is the yellow stuff pus?
    I recommend Tylan50 1/2 cc for a regular size bird.

    You can put a drop of Tylan50 directly in the eye, and you can also apply triple antibiotic ointment on the eye. Make sure it has no pain relief added to the ointment.

    Yes it is pus. Yesterday the eye looked better not as liqiudy. I saw her this morning and the eye isnt yellow anymore. Still has some swelling. What is the difference between Tylan 200 and Tylan 50?

    I think the 200 is stronger than the 50. I would put a drop of Tylan in the eye each day for about 3 days.
