If it is not coccidia will it harm them to give them the treatment? I really don't have the money today for another vet visit!
Also is my dosing correct? Liquid corid 9.6%, 5.6 ML per gallon?
And one last question. Does anyone know if it is safe for my rabbit to drink the water with the corid? Should I separate her during the 5 day treatment?
Thanks in advance for any help!
No, the correct dose for chickens is 9.5 ml (2 teaspoons) per gallon for five days, then 2.375 ml (1/2 teaspoon) for 7-14 days. Rabbits can have amporlium,, but I don't think they're supposed to get as much as chickens, so might be best to to separate your rabbit.
Brand name Corid is labeled cattle, so let's use the instructions for AmproMed instead. They are the same, both are 9.6% ampolium.
I start by converting to metric.
9.6% Corid = 16 ounces = 473.176 ml
@ 0.024%, 473.176 ml makes 50 gallons, so 473.176 ÷ 50 = 9.46352 ml and I round up to 9.5 ml ( or 2 teaspoons) for one gallon.
The 0.012% amount is 1/2 that (4.75ml or 1 teaspoons) and the 0.006% amount is 1/4 the 0.024% amount (2.375 ml or 1/2 teaspoon)
Does that help?
