Flavoring Tylan

By Nancy Ferris

Drink water

During the recent SDA outbreak, I found my rats wouldn’t touch Tylan. I was out of practice with treating respiratory since my rats hadn’t had it in a long time. It was suggested to add sugar or Kool-Aid® to it. I went to the store and decided on Tang, since it has vitamin C and calcium in it. The rats loved the stuff. They got over the virus quickly. I think they drink more of it and get more Tylan into their systems quicker. *
