my whole flock has coccidosis! i gave them sulmet is that the right think to do?
Quote:I believe the recommended meds for coccidosis are Sulmet or Corid. I do not know details. Hope someone with more knowledge will come on and help.
Good luck & I hope your chickens are OK.
Sulmet will work. Most people on BYC say (that I have read) that Corid is easier on their systems than Sulmet. But Sulmet cures more kinds of cocci than Corid.
I have used Corid several times. Twice I have had to retreat after a few days when the bloody poo came back.
You are fine.
my chickens got that.........i did nothing and they are still alive.......i see big pharma has infiltrated animals too.......
Quote:How do you know that's what it was? It doesn't sound like you're the type to have taken a stool sample to the vet for verification.
i have 70+ birds so i freaked out when it happened
Some birds might not die from it but they are in abdominal pain - also they may become unthrifty for the rest of their lives, affecting egg production and future health.
