    Ok, thanks. Is there a better antibiotic than this that I can use, if there is a next time?

    Well, if by "better" you mean more effective, I would recommend Tylan50 or Tylan200. Both come in an oral powdered form and in an injectable form. They're especially good for treating respiratory diseases. I'm not sure about the withdrawal period for Tylan, though.

    I agree with Bantamlover21. If you want a stronger, faster-acting antbiotic, I think that Tylan50 would work great. It is a great antibiotic for respiratory diseases especially. Tylan200 isn't quite as good because it is given to chickens in very small doses, which can be harder to measure.

    Yes, I was talking about withdrawal time mainly, but also a better antibiotic in general too. Thanks everyone.
