    Does anyone know how soon after my chicken has been on it for 14 days can I put her back on it?? Or should I try another antibiotic? She is still sneezing up a storm....

    I recommend that you put her on a different antibiotic simply because the tetroxy didnt work. Perhaps tylan 50 injectable would be better. I'm wondering if there are any other symptoms besides sneezing, such as; wheezing, gurgling, runny nostrils, swollen eyes/face, bubbly eyes? If there arnt any other symptoms, you might be dealing with an environmental or fungal problem...in which case no antibiotic will help.

    sometime when she sneezes snort flies from her nose, she has like spit bubbles on her eyes. I do not hear any wheezing or gurgling. cant really tell if her face is swollen, we are new chicken owners.

    It definitely sounds like a respiratory disease. Keep in mind that respiratory diseases are contageous to other birds and can be carried on clothing, shoes, hands etc...practice biosecurity and keep her seperated from other birds.
    I recommend purchasing tylan 50 injectable, it'll be in the cattle section at the feed store. You can administer it orally or by injection. You'll need to purchase a syringe with a needle to withdraw the tylan from the bottle. To administer orally; give her 1/2cc orally once a day for 5 days. If you decide to inject her; inject 1/2cc into her breast muscle just under the skin, once a day for 3 days. Alternate breasts and injection sites when you inject.
