It is often used as a treatment for bacterial infections in a number of species . This compound can be found in injectible, intramammary, and oral formulations depending on what kind of animal is being treated .
Tylosin is often described as having a foul taste that is hard to disguise. This may prevent animals from ingesting the product. To help combat this, a bitter blocker or taste modulating agent should be used. Using a bitter blocker for Tylosin can help improve the taste profile of your product, without adding harsh chemicals or unnecessary filler.
