    Treating Coccidiosis with Corid, Amprol, AmproMed - The Correct Amprolium Dose

    When treating coccidisosis in my own birds I use the 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:

    Give amprolium at the 0.012% level as soon as coccidiosis is diagnosed and continue for three to five days. (In severe outbreaks, give amprolium at the 0.024% level.) Continue with 0.006% amprolium medicated water for an additional 1 to 2 weeks. No other source of drinking water should be available to the birds during this time. Make fresh daily.

    So what does that mean?

    20% Powder
    0.024% = no less than 1.5 teaspoons per gallon
    0.012% = no less than 3/4 teaspoons per gallon
    0.006% = no less than 1/3 teaspoon per gallon

    9.6% Liquid
    0.024% = no less than 2 teaspoons per gallon
    0.012% = no less than 1 teaspoons per gallon
    0.006% = no less than 1/2 teaspoon per gallon
