    I am making calls to the Corid veterinary department but keep getting passed around - no answer yet.
    I did go to that link but how do you convert mg into cc? In my research it seems it cannot be converted.
    The 10cc dose was recommended in an earlier reply on this thread. I administered that last night as she is a trusted source.
    I am only mixing up a quart at a time (only six chicks) so 2.5cc in the water. I used a syringe and put the Corid into a teaspoon to see how much it was....it looked like about a third. That didn't seem like too much, but I really don't know.
    I am very nervous because I recently over-dosed my dogs with a worming solution with almost disastrous consequences. I bought the stuff at the feed store, apparently for poultry, but when I got it home and read the label there were only indications for cattle, dogs and cats, and they were in drops per lb. of body weight. How on earth do you measure that many drops?!
    This is so frustrating as one little chick is really ailing and I don't want to waste any more time. It took me a whole day to find the stuff.
    Let me know what you find out. I will do the same.

    Okay, I'm sorry for the confusion here (didn't sleep too well last night) I was thinking the link you were referring to was the one in the thread that I started -"Urgent...." in this section, that was the one with the mg's and kg's.
    Anyway, I finally spoke to someone who could give me a definitive answer and 10cc per gallon is correct (Thank you Speckledhen)
    When I checked the link you mentioned I panicked again because of the mention of it being for cattle and too strong etc. So I called him back and he reassured me it is fine, so I am reaching for the syringe right now...2.5cc per quart water.
    I never thought I could fret this much about these naughty little things - how they do take possession of your heart !
    Good luck with yours.

    The person at my feed store recommended Sulmet, its pretty cheap and you add 1 tablespoon to a gallon of water. You give them this mixture for 2 days, then you cut it in half (1.5 teaspoon in 1 gallon) for two days. This should fix them right up.

    From 7/27 discussion we had about Amprolium (also called Corid) ~

    Quote:This dosage is for adult standard birds. Hope that helps!
