    On a scale of Sugar to Flour, with Sugar being 1 and Flour being 10, it's probably a 6? I dont know. Hmm... I'm going to just call the company tomorrow and ask them what the proper ratio is for smaller ammounts.

    I just looked at the start of this thread and realized the initial question was in regards to Tylan 50 and I'm not sure if that's the same thing as Tylosin. I seem to recall reafing that it is, but to be sure I'm going to ask about that too!

    Tylan 50 is the brand name for tylosin 50mg/ml injectable. There is also a tylosin powder called Tylan Soluble. For that they have mg per pound dosing instructions, but not teaspoons per gallon.

    I found out how much one teaspoon of Tylan Soluble Powder weighs. [​IMG] According to the veterinary formulary I have it weighs 2.5 to 2.7 grams, which means one teaspoon will have 2500 mg to 2700 mg of tylosin.

    1/8 teaspoon = 312 mg to 337.5 mg tylosin.
    1/4 teaspoon = 625 mg to 675 mg tylosin.
    1/3 teaspoon = 833 mg to 900 mg tylosin.
    1/2 teaspoon = 1250 mg to 1350 mg tylosin.

    Welcome to BYC! If you do like the mfg suggests with the powder in water, her dose would be 1/2 cc per *pound* orally twice a day. How much do you think she weighs?

    The injectable can be given orally, but will work best if given two or more times per day. How many time per day do you think you can give it?

    Here's how I calculate the dose:

    2.57 pounds x 25 mg per pound รท 50 mg per ml = 1.285 ml orally twice a day. I know it seems like a lot compared to what other posts on forums say, but I do believe this to be the correct dose.
