My hen "Bandage" is shaking her head, sneezing and has abnormal breathing and talking sounds(sound like full mucus in throat when she talks). This started a few days ago. Her breathing is getting slightly better but the other symptoms are not. I want to give her tylan 50 injectable orally to her. I have given injections before but hate doing it, and would rather give it to her orally. I don't want to mix tylan soluble in water because she doesn't drink much and right now I am mixing water in with her pellets because she just won't drink. Last time I weighed her a few weeks back she weighed a little less than 6 lbs maybe 5.5 lbs. I think the dose is 1/2 cc for normal size and 1/4 cc for smaller size, is that right? but now sure how long to give it to her, heard orally takes longer than injections. Thanks in advance. I am gonna pick up the bottle today at Tractor Supply its for cattle and swine, again thank you for you help.
