    Since poultry antibiotics are no longer available, I need to find an alternate solution to D-10. I keep an antibiotic handy and have saved many chickens with it when I knew they would have died.
    I bought Tylan 50 for cattle and swine. I found dosage instructions, it's 1/2 cc for standard and 1/4 cc bantam orally. But I don't know if these instructions are for the product I bought, the thread only says Tylan 50 and that could be a poultry Tylan 50 and not the one I bought. I tried to upload a picture of the one I bought and I want to know if this can be used for poultry.

    FYI- I don't misuse antibiotics, I just give it to chickens when needed, as a last resort, when I know they won't survive the night. Don't want to let them die... [​IMG]

    As far as I know, Tylan 50 sold for cattle is the same as the Tylan 50 commonly used for chickens. The dosages you found are correct.

    You can give the Tylan orally, but it works faster if it is injected.
