Coccidiosis Treatment

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Tuesday morning, I found one of my four pullets which are about 6 weeks old had red bloody poop.   They are all very alert and acting normal.  The red bloody poop is the only sign....... I immediately started all four pullets on Corid 9.6% - 1 teaspoon to 1 gallon of water.  I know that I am to treat with Corid for 5 days.

 

I have read that I should follow up with sulfadimethoxine about 10 days later.  I have not been able to find sulfadimethoxine anywhere (not locally or online). 

 

My question is...will the Corid 9.6% for those 5 days be enough treatment?  If not is there anything else that I need to purchase as a follow up? 

 

 

Thank you in advance

Dosage for Cocci is 1 1/2 teaspoons Corid powder per gallon or 2 teaspoons of 9.6% Corid liquid per gallon

Give for 5-7 days - make sure this is the ONLY water available during that time period. Mix a fresh batch at least once a day.

 

When they finish the Corid offer some poultry vitamins in the water for a few days, and a bit of plain yogurt for probiotics.

 

Can you provide a reference link where you found the recommended to follow up with sulfadimethoxine?

Thank you for the information. Unfortunately I can not find the correct post about treating with sulfadimethoxine as a follow up. It was here on Backyardchickens but My bookmark disappeared. I read so much information on treatments that I can not go directly back to the post. I will take y'all's advice. THANK YOU very much
