Does anyone know if Tylan is safe to use for waterfowl? I don't have any sick birds right now, but about a month ago a gander hurt his foot trying to swim in some rocks that happened to collect water from all of the rain we've been getting this fall (strange that we didn't get any over the summer). I was going to give him an antibiotic as well as clean the wound, but was afraid since I know you aren't supposed to give waterfowl medicated feed. He is fine now, but I would like to have this on hand just in case.

So, is Tylan safe for them and do you give it to them at the same rate as chickens (1/2cc per 5 pounds injection or 4cc per gallon of water)? How long do you medicate?

I believe I remember reading on one of these threads that tylan was ok to give to geese, I wish I could remember which thread it was! As far as the dosage, I have no clue on that one
I was told to give Tylan to my runners by my vet. I did, and they are fine. And now I am trying to remember the dosage. It was for at least a week, perhaps ten days. Let me see if I can find the bottle.

An important piece I don't have is the strength of the Tylan I was given, but it was 1/4 teaspoon powder per liter of water for seven days.
