Hi,
My turkeys seem to have a respiratory problem as they are sneezing and are also lethargic. I have Tylan 200 on hand. They are 25lbs. Can someone help me calculate the dose and length of time that would be best to give them. Also is it best orally on bread or some food item? Thanks!

Can you give 2.5 ml orally 3 times a day? The turkey tylan does is 60 mg per pound per day and it should be given at least three time a day.

25 pounds x 60 mg / 200 mg per ml / 3 times a day = 2.5 ml three time a day.

Thank you, I can give it to them 3x a day if they cooperate:) it tastes horrendous so I will first try to give it to them on something. How long should I do this for?
Thanks again!

Try three days. If they improve, give two days past cessation of symptoms.

Thank you.
Just went to treat them and one was dead:( we are devastated as they are our pets. I'm so worried for the others.
I have a big flock of chickens that all free range together. I think I should treat them too.Can you tell me what dose For them and do I do it the same way. I appreciate your help.

thank you. Unfortunately here they don't care about poultry and it's tough even with our goats.
I have about 40 chickens and 6 geese that all free range. I could treat them am and pm when in coop so I could make sure each one was treated. Can you help me with what dose per pound as I have avariety of sizes. Do you know are geese susceptible to respiratory infections also. Againthanks for your helpI realize you are not a vet. I have to try everything I can tho. Thanks
