Target species:

For use in calves, pigs, chickens and turkeys. Indications for use, specifying the target species:
  • For the control of Mycoplasma synoviae airsacculitis in chickens and Mycoplasma gallisepticum S6 in chickens and turkeys. In the field tylosin has also proved useful in reducing the level of infection following stress associated with live vaccination.
  • As an aid in the control of outbreaks of necrotic enteritis in chickens caused by Clostridium perfringens.
  • For the prevention and control of enzootic pneumonia, and scours caused by organisms (e.g. Lawsonia intracellularis) sensitive to tylosin, in pigs.
  • For the control of pneumonia in cattle associated with mycoplasmata and Pasteurella multocida sensitive to tylosin.
Special precautions for use in animals:
  • Use of the product should be based on susceptibility testing of the bacteria isolated from the animal. If this is not possible, therapy should be based on local (regional, farm level) epidemiological information about susceptibility of the target bacteria.
  • Official, national and regional antimicrobial policies should be taken into account when the product is used.
  • A high rate of in vitro resistance has been demonstrated in European strains of Brachyspira hyodysenteriae implying that the product will not be sufficiently efficacious against swine dysentery.
  • Use of the product deviating from the instructions given in the SPC may increase the prevalence of bacteria resistant to tylosin and may decrease the effectiveness of treatment with other macrolides, lincosamides and streptogramin B due to the potential for cross-resistance.
Use during pregnancy, lactation or lay:
  • No adverse effects to tylosin have been seen in fertility, multi-generation or teratology studies.

Recommended programmes:

a) Chickens and turkeys;

For preventative medication the following programmes are recommended:

b) Pigs;

A medicated solution of drinking water should generally be administered until 24 hours after scouring or respiratory symptoms have ceased, normally 3-10 days. The diagnosis should be reviewed if there is no response after 5 days of medication.

c) Calves;

One gram of tylosin activity should be incorporated in milk or milk replacer twice daily for each calf. This should be continued for 7-14 days dependent on response. The intake of medicated water depends on the clinical condition of the animals. In order to obtain the correct dosage, the concentration of Tylan Soluble has to be adjusted accordingly.

Overdose (symptoms, emergency procedures, antidotes), if necessary;

There is no evidence of tylosin toxicity in animals, at dose rates of up to 1000 mg/kg.

Withdrawal periods;

Can you eat the eggs


Hi, if you give tylan to your chickens, can you eat the eggs.

  • VioVet Staff

The Tylan Soluble Powder has a zero day withdrawal period for eggs. This means you can eat the eggs during treatment.

How long does it keep?


I have 2 pet chickens. My vet and I have discussed the various options I have but has not yet written me a script as she is unsure how long a tub this size would keep.
They do not routinely keep it at the practice and although she has said she will research the shelf life I figure as you sell it I will ask. Thank you

  • VioVet Staff

The shelf life for this product as per the datasheet is as follows:
Shelf life
Shelf-life of the veterinary medicinal product as packaged for sale: 3 years.
Shelf-life after dilution according to directions: 24 hours

We dispense what our wholesalers send us so cannot guarantee 3 year long expiries. It is likely that you will receive a shelf life shorter than 3 years when you purchase the medication.

Tylan oral syringe

Karen moxon

Hi do you sell an oral version off tylan to be given in a syringe to chickens, the powder version is difficult to convert for oral syringing, I don’t like injecting in to my tiny chickens.
Regards Kare Moxon.

  • VioVet Staff

The Tylan Soluble and G50 Premix Powder are both for oral administration, as per the data sheet. This is a prescription medication so I would advise contacting your vet for advice on how to best administer it to your chickens.

Tylan sibo/sid dog


Can this be used for sibo/sid for dogs ? My dog has been on metronizadole and hasn't had big improvement. I've read that tylan is now the drug of choice for this and ibd.

  • VioVet Staff

Tylan is one of several antibiotics used in this situation, but I would certainly not say that it is widely regarded as the antibiotic of choice. I am sure that some vets will think this and it might be very good in their experience, but not all vets would have the same opinion. In fact I have been to lectures on this recently and found that international speakers from the USA and UK tend to disagree, so there is not a general consensus on this point. I think that the choice of antibiotic is best left to your own vet. You can always discuss the matter fully with them, but if you are not happy with the choice of treatment your vet advises, I would wonder if you should see another vet. I really feel that the choice of prescription drugs should be led by your own vet who is familiar with your particular dog.

I have 10 chickens

how much will I need

I have 10 chickens so how much Tulane will I need to treat them all? I have defiantly 1 chicken with an upper resperoitry infection (confirmed by the vet) not in the lungs just upper section

  • VioVet Staff

Since this is a prescription-only product, you would need to send us a prescription from your vet in order to buy it. Your vet should decide on how the treatment is given and put instructions on the prescription. As a guide, I would say that this is not generally used for just a few birds like you have. One small sachet could treat about 3,000 birds via the drinking water, so you would have to divide the contents of a sachet up very carefully to treat just 10 birds. Then you have to deal with the wasted product you do not need. It might be better for your vet to find a different treatment.
