my bottle is 16 oz and it says put 16 oz in 100 gal. need to know how much to put in one gal of water please.

Corid dosage is 2 tesapoons of liquid or 1.5 tsp of powder to 1 gallon of water for 5-7 days.

my corid is 9.6%

my corid is 9.6%

The dosage is 9.5cc's/ml's per gallon of water for 5 days. Change it daily, dont add anything to it.

Quote:The amounts that Eggcessive and Dawg said *are* correct. FYI, the directions on the bottle are for cattle and poultry get twice that.

Here are the FDA recommendations directions for Corid and Amprol for poultry:

"Chickens
Indications: For the treatment of coccidiosis.
Amount: Administer at the 0.012 percent level in drinking water as soon as coccidiosis is diagnosed and continue for 3 to 5 days (in severe outbreaks, give amprolium at the 0.024 percent level); continue with 0.006 percent amprolium-medicated water for an additional 1 to 2 weeks."

Here are the instructions for making it:
Source: http://www.asp-inc.com/products/documents/prodinfo/a/amp96.pdf
"To prepare 50 gallons of medicated water:
Dosage Level Mixing Directions

0.024% Add one pint (16 fluid ounces) of 9.6% Solution AMPROL to about five gallons of water in a 50-gallon medication barrel. Stir, then add water to the 50 gallon mark. Stir thoroughly."

Now for the math lesson...
• To make it easy you should calculate the number of ml in 16 ounces which is 473.176ml.
• Then you divide 473.176ml by 50 gallons which equals 9.46352ml per gallon
• Then round up to 9.5ml and two teaspoons is close, so either can be used.

The .006% amount is 2.37ml or 1/2 teaspoon.
