    So I was reading the dosing instructions for tylan 50 for CDR. It said the give 1/2cc subcutaneously and 1/2cc in the breast. Why do you have to give it both muscularly and under the skin?

    Just curious!

    You can give Tylan 50 orally. Don't have to give them a shot.

    The shot doesn't bother me. I was just wondering why I see recommendations for 1/2 cc in the muscle AND 1/2 cc under the skin.

    Quote:You can give the 3 day injections in the breast muscles, alternating each side each day. There's nothing stating that you cant do it either way. Injecting into the breast is the quickest way for the tylan to take effect.

    Quote:Even if it isn't the water soluble kind? Still give 1/2 cc of Tylan 50?

    Yes. You can give the tylan 50 injectable orally, 1/2cc once a day for 5 days. Five days because it isnt easily absorbed as it is when injected. 1/4cc for small birds.

    Would I be able to use this on a chicken who seems to be coughing, is wheezing, and somewhat lethargic? She's eating and drinking, but no bulging eye or goop. She's one of 4 new hens about 6 months old.

    if my pullet is very thin, should I just do oral? I've never done shots and oral might be easier but I want it to work. If injecting is faster, maybe I should go that route?

    My pullet is only 1# or less - is 1/4cc still good?
