    My little bantam girl has that sickness where she's congested and her eye is bubbling. She's been that way for a while (maybe a week), sorry to say, before I was able to get her the meds. She's had one dose yesterday and one dose today, 1/4 cc IM. She's not looking any better yet. She sounds better, but she's still draining lots of fluid. She's in quarantine and is getting lots of good food to help put a little bit of weight back on her.

    How much longer should I continue the Tylan 50 after tomorrow's dosage?

    I'm pretty sure you need to give it for 5-7 days for it to be effective.

    I mix my meds in the water then take some in a dropper and give some in the mouth that way I know the sick bird is getting some meds in her. Often sick bird are also off feed and water so you have to watch them. Just because you put the meds in the water doesnt mean she has drank any of it. good luck
