    I've used Tylan before, and my dosage was based on the weight of the animal and given as a shot in the breast. What are you trying to treat?

    One teaspoon Tylan powder to 1 gallon of water. Tylan is funny. You have to mix it a certain way or you will just end up with Tylan (useless) clumps. Add 1 gallon to your water container. Put 1 teaspoon Tylan in a small, clean, DRY, glass jar with a lid. Add approx 1/4 cup water from the gallon, cover the jar and shake well. Add this mixture to the gallon of water and stir. The water has to be added to the Tylan. I learned my lesson the hard way.

    Treat for 5 days and make sure this is the only source of water they have.

    Make a fresh batch EACH day


    Just a note but Tylan only works for respiratory problems.

    PM me if you have any more questions
