    On the label it continues saying -
    50 ml sterile liquid for injections
    Content of active ingredient in 1 ml: 50mg (5%) of Tylosin
    but the contents are in powder form. How is this powder used by injection?
    What would the powder to sterile water ratio be?
    Really hoping someone can advise me promptly as I have an outbreak of CRD

    Are you going to use it as an injection?
    Are you aware you can give this orally?

    Can you post a picture of the exact product you bought?

    Don’t overthink the dosage. Each ml contains 50 mg of tylosin. Just give 0.25 ml (1/4ml) per pound 3 times a day for 3-5 days. I would give it orally without the needle. If you can get a rough weight, or predict the weight it helps to be more accurate.

    would I mix the powder with liquid before giving it orally?

    Are you in the US?

    May I ask where did you buy this?
