    since we cannot purchase Tylan 50 for Poultry over the counter, can we use the tylan 100 for dogs and cats or swine and cattle? If so, how much?

    You can't buy it over the counter? I just saw some 2 weeks ago on the shelf at TSC in Tennessee.

    I'm confused... Can you show us what you want to use?

    Tylan Soluble Powder is a water soluble powder, it requires a prescription.
    Tylan 50 is injectable for cattle and is available over the counter.
    Tylan 200 is injectable for cattle and is available over the counter.
    Tylan 100 is a medicated livestock feed, it requires a prescription.

    I need Tylan 50 for a chicken. The only Tylan 50 they have on the counter at Tractor Supply is Tylan 50 for Cattle/Swine injectable. Can I use this for a chicken and how much would I use?

    I believe this is what Tractor Supply carries - it's not labeled for poultry, but as far as I know, you can use it.

    Injectable Tylan 50 dosage is 1 cc or ml per 5 pounds of weight. You can give it orally or as an injection into the breast muscle 1/4 inch deep. Administer 2x a day for 5days.
