    If I did my math correctly:

    50mg per pound = 110mg/kg
    60mg per pound = 132mg/kg

    Thanks, Kathy --

    I found this buried in the text of the link:

    TYLOSIN -
    (Butler; Elanco)
    Available as an injectable solution (50 mg/ml or 200 mg/ml Tylan
    200) for IM injection. Also available as a soluble powder (Elanco)
    for oral administration. Soluble powder can be mixed with sterile
    water (mixed 1:10) and used as an eye spray. Tylosin 200 mg/ml
    injectable solution can be mixed with DMSO (1 ml tylosin/50 ml
    DMSO) and used for nebulization. May be effective in the initial
    therapy of upper respiratory infections, particularly when nebu-
    lized. May be useful as an eye spray for the frequent treatment of
    conjunctivitis (particularly if mycoplasma is suspected). Tissue
    concentrations of tylosin may last for three hours following an
    hour of nebulization in quail and pigeons. High therapeutic index
    (see Chapter 17).

    Anybody got any idea how to give a pea a nebulizer treatment?

    Also interesting... sounds like Tylan works best if you catch the respiratory infection early... though I guess that's to be expected -- everything seems to respond better if you catch it early [​IMG]

    I know the store has it in the injectable, not sure if I can get the powder. But if the injectable works through a nebulizer, it should also work orally at the correct dosage, one would think, as long as it isn't so strong that it damages the throat tissues.

    Well I think that's a GREAT idea... wonder if I could find a box big enough to wedge in his train feathers?

    Kathy, are you thinking peas should get the chicken dose or the turkey dose? 50 mg/lb or 60 mg/lb?

    Edited to correct it to pounds (!)
