I called the manufacturer, Durvet, today and the man there told me 1 leveled teaspoon per gallon of water, made fresh daily for at least 6 days straight. For more info go to www.durvet.com

If you are going to use a sulfa drug, it is best to use sulfadimethoxine, not sulfamethoxine.  Of course, amprolium (Corid) is recommended as the initial course of treatment.
