Tylosin is a macrolide antibiotic, in the same family as erythromycin, used primarily in chickens, turkeys, swine, and honey bees. It is used in cats, dogs, and small mammals to treat diarrhea, gastrointestinal tract inflammation, chronic colitis and inflammatory bowel disease. The use of Tylosin in cats, dogs and small mammals is “off-label” which is common in veterinary medicine, follow your veterinarians directions very carefully as they may differ from the label on the product.
Tylosin is indicated as an antibiotic used for colitis and chronic diarrhea. Tylosin may also decrease the symptoms by affecting the immune system in the intestine.
You might receive this product under a different name as a generic formulation of Tylosin Tartrate.
