    I have already googled "corid dosage" on BYC and am very confused.

    First of all, most of what I read has refered to liquid Corid.

    Here is what I was able to find at my farm store:
    Corid/Amprolium, 20% soluble POWDER, 10 oz. pkg.
    dosage for cattle: 10oz. pkg to 125 gallons of water

    I am dosing 1 sick little banty hen... her name is Betti Confetti. Not even sure it is cocci? but have done everything else for her and this was suggested.

    Thanks for any help given. I hate not knowing what to do for a sick bird. [​IMG]

    I'm so glad you posted. I just bought a bag and was going to ask the same question.

    By the way, I still have a bottle of corid. If I remember correctly is the dose for the liquid 2 tsp a gallon? Glad I found the powder, it is alot cheaper.

    Thanks

    I figured out ( by dividing 10 by 125 ) that I need .08 oz. of Corid powder in a gallon of water. 8/100 oz.? How can I translate that to teaspoons, etc? I'm no math wiz and can use some help.
    And that is the dosage for a calf... would that work for a banty chicken?
    thanks again.

    ok... I'm going downstairs to try and find out how many teaspoons are in an ounce... actual hands-on measuring... I think I'll use sugar as my powder. 8/100 is very close to a scant 1/10. What the brain can't figure out the hands will. Wish me luck.

    Please feel free to correct my thinking if it is wrong. I'm using all of you to bounce this idea off of. Thanks.

    4 teaspoons in an ounce both dry measure and very close in actual weight (on my scale).

    4 divided by 10 = .4 or 4/10... sooo... that means a little less than 1/2 teaspoon to a gallon?

    This is as close as I can get to a dosage of the powder Corid.

    Have I thought this through well? If I don't hear from anyone else on her I guess this is what I will try.

    Quote:Thanks! Actually all 3 are kind of in the same ball-park of what I figured out... so that is just confirmation that I am on the right track. I will do a scant 1/2 teaspoon in a gallon of water.
    Thanks for brainstorming with me.

    mmaddies's mom, you're good at math. You're correct, 1/2 teaspoon per gallon of water. Mix the corid daily with fresh drinking water for 5 consecutive days.

    Love "brainstorming"... many minds are SO much better than one!
    Thanks again for the confirmation.
