    I have a chick with Coccidia and I need to know if I can mix electrolytes/vitamins (Rooster booster and Poultry nutri-drench) in her Corid water? I know you shouldn't mix certain medications together but that shouldn't count, right?

    I would not ever mix medications with vitamins just to be safe *in the same water* since there might be a chemical reaction.

    Corid in particular- you don't want to give them vitamins at the same time, since Corid (amprolium) is a thiamine blocker and starves the cocci of thiamine. So you don't want to give extra thiamine at the time of dosing. After the dosing days are over you can restart the vitamins.

    Okay, that makes sense. :) Thank you.
