To evaluate efficacy of Tiamuline in mycoplasmosis of chickens and turkeys under controlled field conditions 2 prophylactical and 3 therapeutical trials were conducted. The compound was administered via drinking water for 3 days in comparison to Tylosin tartrate. In both prophylactical and therapeutical tests, Tiamuline showed a superior efficiacy, as measured by clinical symptoms, pathological lesions and microbiological findings. Therefore, Tiamuline can be recommended for treatment of mycoplasmosis in chickens and turkeys in a dosage of 0.025% and in a dosage of 0.0125% for prophylaxis in flocks at risk.
