    Hi - I'm currently treating my 23 week old chicken with Tylan 50 (injected in the back of her neck) because I believe she had Corzya (bubbly eye, nasal discharge and she smelled TERRIBLE)

    She's had 3 injections of 1/2 cc so far. her eyes aren't AS bubbly, but still are a tad. She doesn't smell bad anymore. She's active, eating and drinking. (She's been inside since starting the injections).

    My question is, how long should I keep injecting her? When she first had these symptoms, I treated her with tetracycline powder (duramycin?) for a week. She was better and I released her, only to have her get "sick" again, just as bad, a week later. I'm afraid that she'll come right back down with it if I don't treat it long enough...

    Thanks a bunch!!

    3 days is usually not long enough. its 1/2 cc injection once a day for 5-7 days or up to 2 weeks if needed. If the chicken is not improving after 4-5 days you can up it to 1/2cc twice a day per doctor brown the chicken doctor.

    Yes, it is powerful, expensive, and requires a prescription. Hence, it is not available to everyone or available quickly...

    thanks! she is improving. she no longer stinks and she only has a little bit of bubbles in her eyes. she's had 4 injections now (1/2 cc once daily). how long do you think i should do it? until the bubbles are completely gone? and once they are gone, do you think i still should give another dose or two? sorry for so many questions, i just want to make her better and make sure she's better.

    Hi @Julie evans :frow

    You have found a very old thread.
    Can you post some photos of your pullet's foot?

    Antibiotics may not always be needed after bumblefoot surgery - how severe is it?
    http://www.the-chicken-chick.com/2011/07/bumblefoot-causes-treatment-warning.html
    If you find that antibiotics are necessary to fight infection - then it may be better to use something like Amoxicillin or Penicillin instead of Tylan50 or consult your vet for advice on what antibiotic is appropriate. While Tylan50 can be used if that is what you have on hand - it is more commonly used to treat respiratory infection.

    And...to answer your initial question - unless it's changed, there is a 1day withdrawal period for Tylan50. Please note - that Tylan50 can be given orally or by injection - if you can give it orally, that would be better, since it can cause pain/inflammation at the injection site because it would be administered at least 2X per day.
