    Does anyone know the dosing of Tetroxy powder to a gallon of water?

    The closest I could find is 1-1/2 teaspoon per gallon of water for the 400-800mg treatment level in treating air sac infection caused by MG/MS and E Coli. Mix a fresh solution daily. Administer 7-14 days, not to be used more than 14 consecutive days. It must be the sole source of water for chickens to drink. There is no withdrawal.

    Oxytetracycline


    [​IMG]



    This package weighs 280 grams
    Package contains 102.4 grams oxytetracycline

    102.4 / 280 = 0.37 , which means that it's 37% oxytetracycline and 63% filler
    370 mg per gram
    One teaspoon probably weighs 3 grams, so it's 3 x 370mg = 1110 mg per teaspoon
    The 800 mg dose for one gallon = ~3/4 teaspoons
