Histomoniasis

post #3 of 9

Evelle, it's called Histomoniasis!  That's a tongue twister.  It's definitely a protozoa that attacks the liver in turkeys.  From what I've been reading, you can get the fish zole (metronidazole) from meyerhatchery.com, and some other places.....I would google for the best price.  Or you could call around and see if you can find it locally.

First State Vet Supply carries metranidazole.  As a human medication it's known as Flagyl.  A Google search will turn up much information about it.

I believe it's no longer allowed under current regulations but it once was.
