Corid (amprolium) Dosage for chickens?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I was told by a vet to use Corid for my laying hens for cocci because we can continue to use the eggs.  My problem is it doesn't have chicken dosage on it and the vet is gone for the day.  Does anyone know the dosage?  it is 9.6% Oral Solution.

Dosage is 9.5cc per gallon of water for 5 days, mix a new batch daily. Your vet is correct, no withdrawal.

I found this stuff at my local feed store. Can I use this on my chickens? If so how much do I give them and do I hold the eggs?

Welcome to BYC!

 

What do you want to use it for? I think it only treats bacterial infections of the intestines. If you want to treat coccidiosis you need amprolium (Corid, Amprol, AmproMed, etc) or a sulfa drug (Sulmet, SMZ-Med 454, Albon, Di-Methox, etc).

It *might* be used to treat bacterial infections of the gut, but I don't think that vets prescribe it much. You should probably exchange it for amprolium or a sulfa.

Precautions

To administer the stated dosage, the concentration of neomycin required in medicated water must be adjusted to compensate for variation in age and weight of animal, the nature and severity of disease signs, and environmental temperature and humidity, each of which affects water consumption.

If symptoms persist after using this preparation for 2 or 3 days, consult a veterinarian. If symptoms such as fever, depression, or going off feed develop, oral neomycin is not indicated as the sole treatment since systemic levels of neomycin are not obtained due to low absorption from the gastrointestinal tract.

Important

Treatment should continue 24 to 48 hours beyond remission of disease symptoms, but not to exceed a total of 14 consecutive days for cattle, swine, sheep, goats, and 5 days for turkeys. Animals not drinking or eating should be treated individually by drench.
