Dear Orobiyi Jubril,

Infectious Larynotracheitis ( ILT) is a viral infection and there is no treatment for this. It can be control by vaccination of ILT vaccine in Layers & Breeders during rearing period at around 4-6 weeks & 10-12 weeks of age via Intra Ocular route.

Usually commercial broilers are not being vaccinated against ILT. If you are in Karachi, you may visit my lab (MICRO LABORATORIES, Shahra-e- Faisal, 522, Anum Blessings.
Tel. 021- 34385807)
Pl. bring 4-5 fresh dead birds for diagnosis.
