I was told by a vet to use Corid for my laying hens for cocci because we can continue to use the eggs. My problem is it doesn't have chicken dosage on it and the vet is gone for the day. Does anyone know the dosage? it is 9.6% Oral Solution.
Welcome to BYC!I found this stuff at my local feed store. Can I use this on my chickens? If so how much do I give them and do I hold the eggs?
|Treatment||20% Powder||9.6% Liquid|
|For 3-5 days||1.5 teaspoons per gallon||2 teaspoons per gallon|
|then for 7-14 days||1/3 teaspoon per gallon||1/2 teaspoon per gallon|
|Percentage||20% Powder||9.6% Liquid|
|0.024%||1.5 teaspoons per gallon||2 teaspoons per gallon|
|0.012%||3/4 teaspoon per gallon||1 teaspoon per gallon|
|0.006%||1/3 teaspoon per gallon||1/2 teaspoon per gallon|
Oh ok thank you. I was going to use it to treat coccidiosis. What would I use this for?Welcome to BYC!
What do you want to use it for? I think it only treats bacterial infections of the intestines. If you want to treat coccidiosis you need amprolium (Corid, Amprol, AmproMed, etc) or a sulfa drug (Sulmet, SMZ-Med 454, Albon, Di-Methox, etc).
Quote: It *might* be used to treat bacterial infections of the gut, but I don't think that vets prescribe it much. You should probably exchange it for amprolium or a sulfa.
