    Searched local TS but they only had injectible (sp?)for cattle. I really think I need to keep some on hand.

    Ebay has powder that is cheaper than DrsFosterSmith.....
    (DRFS-requires script)
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Tylan-Solua...159?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item230df6df2f

    $46.97 / 100 gram/Free Shipping

    Think I need to get some, to keep on hand.....

    Per Hopkins:
    Tylan powder (100 g): Tylan powder is a good antibiotic for respiratory illnesses in peafowl.
    Mix 1 ½ teaspoons of Tylan powder into 1 gallon of water and mix thoroughly.
    Mix this solution with 5 gallons of drinking water.

    Quote:I just keep Tylan 50 injectable on hand, when you have a problem give a couple cc's right in the breast ,might take a day or two maybe three, but if you can't catch them again, they'll be okay! I'm not a vet, but an old guy that had had peafowl fo lots of years told me that at the first sign of respiratory problem, give them a shot ,if they still have a problem the next day give them another shot, I've done this for the last 4 or 5 years (haven' lost any since using it) don't have to treat everybody just because one has a problem!! I'm not a vet, just passing on info from an old raiser! GOOD LUCK!!!!

    I personally have never found the powder as effective as the injectable . You can give the injection just under skin or squeeze some in the mouth...... I go under the skin, seems to work better for me.

    Please don't shoot it into the breast... Tylan causes permanent muscle damage. I would consider injecting into the muscle ONLY in and emergency.
