It wasn't like they were going to live otherwise, and I was desperate (I started a thread about it with no response). So far, of the four I've given this treatment, three are not only alive but now appear healthy. The fourth was too weak when I started this routine, and was past helping.

So, take it with a grain of salt. My advice is worth every penny you paid for it. All I can do is share my experience, and obviously if any negatives come out of this I will post them, too. The real key is prevention, and while it's not possible to completely eliminate the risk of coccidiosis, at least we can lessen the likelihood.

Actually I agree with your giving the Corid orally in a concentrated form, along with water supplementation. It's just that I wanted to let you and others know that it is normally given in the water. I would also have done what you did. Some newer people read only a few threads and may get the wrong information if it is not clear--that's all I meant in pointing it out. Casportpony has done a lot in educating people about Corid dosage and giving it in a concentrated form. The manufacturers don't help much in their directions, since Corid is many a drug for cows and other large animals.

Here's the link to the article, "DOING YOUR OWN FECALS IS EASY":

And I haven't completely read through this next one that is posted here on BYC (but plan to):

I'm hoping to be better prepared to make some fact-based decisions on treatments...!
