Hello. I was given Albon to give to my flock for a severe case of coccidiosis. I know vitamin k can’t be given when giving corrid of coccidiosis but can I give probiotics and electrolytes and vitamins while giving Albon to treat coccidiosis in my flock or do I need to wait until afterwards. I have a particularly lethargic hen and I want to give her a boost but I don’t want to interfere with the medication,

It is thiamine or vitamin B1 that cannot be given during Corid. The problem with given electrolytes or probiotics is that it cannot be mixed with the Corid water, and they need to drink as much Corid water as possible to get enough of it.
Albon should not be a problem with vitamins. It is a sulfa antibiotic and works differently.

Most times mixing electrolytes with other medication might not be good, in case they crystalize or separate. You could however use a tonic such as Poultry NutriDrench 2 ml daily, since vitamins are not contraindicated with Albon.
