You need to check out the ingredients list on there. It contains the active ingredient you need, but oral preparations can also contain a numbing agent/pain reliever, which if it is one of the -caine drugs is deadly to chickens.

Thanks CMV for all your help and suggestions.
My bantam seems to be a lot better today. Her feathers are much fluffier around the backend near the vent, she is involved much more with the other bantams, and it perching sitting down now rather than standing up.
I have been giving her this: https://www.suppliesforsmallholders.co.uk/verm-poultry-wormer-liquid-500ml-p-174.html which contains the following herbal ingredients: Allium sativum, ulmus fulva, mentha piperita, thymus vulgaris, galium aperine, cinnamomum zelandicum.
Excuse font change! Anyway...it seems to have helped, I have yet to do a proper check of her vent, but she seems to be passing droppings fairly normally as well at the moment.
I will give another update, just in case anyone else is having similar problems, to hopefully conclude.
Well I have properly checked my bantam's vent now, and all the gloop including the prolapse is all cleared up, literally overnight. I just hope this condition doesn't reccur. She seems a lot happier and is scratching around the leafy goodness as I type this update.
Maybe that Verm-x stuff did help to clear, what ever was in her system, up? Who knows for sure. Perhaps she managed to get over it all by herself...
....I am rather glad I don't have to give her a daily bath. More to the point I am sure she is too!
