    Hello all!

    Two of my turkeys have had chronic sinus infections. Regular ol' Duramycin seems to have very little effect: basically it reduces the swelling for a week, and then the gals are suffering again.

    I did my BYC search, and it seems Tylan is the most reccomended treatment--but I would like to make sure.

    Any other suggestions/comments?

    Yes, Tylan is good stuff and I am not just saying that because I work for ELANCO. The bad thing is that I work for the companion division which is dogs & cats so I don't have access to samples!!!![​IMG]

    Tylan seems to be the most effective non prescription med from what I have heard.
