Why is this medication prescribed?

Tylosin is an antibiotic of the macrolide class developed for veterinary use.

It is made naturally by the bacterium Streptomyces fradiae and acts to inhibit bacterial protein synthesis by inhibiting the 50S ribosome, a cellular structure only certain bacteria have and use to make internal proteins.

Tylosin is licensed for use as a broad spectrum antibiotic for injectable or oral use in treatment of infection (e.g. respiratory tract and skin infections) in livestock. In small animals, tylosin has been used for its anti-inflammatory and antibiotic properties to treat colitis. It may also be used as a growth promoter in food animals.

Tylosin is sold under the brand name Tylan«.
