Basic list of meds, vitamins, etc. to keep on hand

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi,

Would anybody have a list of the "most" commonly used chicken medications, vitamins, supplements including natural and organic? Also lwhat they are used for?

I know there are hundreds out there, and hundreds of lists on the internet too! But I'm just looking for the most common or maybe your top 5 to always have on hand.

Thanks!

Welcome to BYC!

 

Most of my must haves are banned for use in poultry, so I won't list those, but here are two that are commonly used in poultry:

 

  • Safeguard (fenbendazole) dewormer.
  • Corid, Amprol or AmproMed - amprolium for coccidiosis
