    then for 7-14 days1/3 teaspoon per gallon1/2 teaspoon per gallon

    When treating coccidisosis in my own birds I use the 0.024% severe outbreak dose for 5 days, then the 0.006% amount for 7-14 days. Since I use the liquid, I use 2 teaspoons per gallon for five days, then 1/2 teaspoon for 7-14 days.

    The FDA, FARAD, and the mfg's say this:
    "Administer at 0.012% in drinking water as soon as coccidiosis is diagnosed and continue for 3 days to 5 days (in severe outbreaks, give 0.024%); continue with 0.006%
    amprolium medicated water for an additional 1 week to 2 weeks. No other source of drinking water should be available to the birds during this time."

    So what does that mean?

    This is wonderful! Medicine labels are not the easiest things to translate - and this puts dosages into clear language. THANK YOU!
