    I have vet confirmed cecal worms and am using Valbazen to treat the problem. Since it isn't specifically for poultry I googled a dosage and got .077 mL per pound of bird weight. My vet called the next day and going off of an emu dosage told me .1 mL per pound and to use it for 3 days in a row, then again in two weeks.

    So far I've given one dose to the birds, you ya'll recommend I do it for 3 days and then again 2 weeks later?

    Yes, you can worm with valbazen in that manner.
    I normally dose 1/2ml orally for standard size birds, then redose in 10 days unless I'm dealing with tapeworms.

    Thank you! You just worm them the first time a single dose?
