# Coccidiosis and Worms... What to treat first? - Page 2

Weight of bird in pounds, divide by 2.2, times 20, divide by 96 = the number of ml to give.water. Is there a reason that you don't want to put in their water?

Well as much as I can get her to hold still on the scale, she's between 3 lb, 5oz and 4 lb. as far as her water, I guess I can, but she's in my guest bath, and her water bowl is only about a cup of water. The math you gave, is that to be added to the water? Even if it's only a cup? Or is that diluting the Corid to give orally? I'm confused

So 4 / 2.2 x 20 / 96 = 0.38 mL of something 😊

You could do that orally and put 0.625 ml of Corid per cup (8 ounces) of water.

Just maybe a dumb interjection here, but dose of a drug is almost always started as mg. per kg. of body weight.  Because wormers often can be found in different strengths, like intended for cows vs. pigs vs. sheep, so ml per kg isn't usually something you would be calculating.  And maybe could make a real big difference in the dose you give?

The Corid dose for poultry is 20 mg/kg and there are 96 mg per 1 ml. The math equation tells how to calculate for it.

Pounds divided 2.2 gives you weigh in kg, x 20 mg/kg gives you number of mg, divided by 96 mg/ml give you the number of ml to give the animal.

A four pound bird needs 36.36 mg of Corid, so 36.36 / 96  = 0.378 ml of Corid.

Make sense?

Yah, this I can follow no problem, this is how I figure my own dosages for sick birds.

Alrighty, I'm going to treat her for 3 days with Corid and will treat for the tapes with Valbazen when it comes in the mail.

I finally dug up the info my vet provided for the Panacur, it was 50mg/kg, treat once, wait a week and retreat. Is Valbazen the same?

The Valbazen dose most people use is 20mg/kg. Math for that would be pounds / 2.2 x 20 / 113.6 = ml.
