Valbazen and Corid dose for ducks? - Page 2

post #11 of 13

So this is what I know about Valbazen...

 

There is a study that shows the most effective dose is 20 mg/kg, which is about what most people on BYC give. That study says that  at 20 mg/kg that Valbazen was 90 something percent effective in the removal of a type of capillary worm. I am concerned though, because I recently read something that suggested the dose should be higher to treat capillary worms, so I want to look into that. Some of my peafowl friends use it for capillary worms in their birds, so I will ask them what dose their vets have them use.

 

Note that I am not saying that Valbazen doesn't treat capillary worms in one 20 mg/kg dose, I just want to do some more research on it.

@duckitup Glad you got ahold of Kathy and that you got the dosages and instructions you needed to start treating :thumbsup. Isn't she the best :D.

 

@casportpony Thanks for the primer on the Valbazen. I've made a note to figure at 20mg/kg in my notebook for future reference. I had a hunch that it needed to be higher but couldn't find much good info in all my researching and all I could find was 10mg/kg.

You win some and lose some. When at first you don't succeed: try... try... try... try and try again.

They can have the same amount as chickens.
