    When treating a bird for coccidiosis one can give an oral drench in addition to their medicated water. Here are the instructions:

    Corid 9.6% liquid - Do not dilute
    • Give 0.1 ml per pound of body weight orally once a day for 1-3 days.
    or
    • 0.02 ml per 100 grams of body weight orally once a day for 1-3 days.

    Corid 20% powder - Mix 1/2 teaspoon powder with 2 teaspoons water.
    • Give 0.34 ml per pound of body weight orally once a day for 1-3 days.
    or
    • 0.07 ml per 100 grams of body weight orally once a day for 1-3 days.

    Thank you for posting this, again! Can't tell you how many times I've searched, especially for the drench, when trying to help with dosing. Now bookmarked and will make it SO much easier, and faster than having to type it all in, to direct people for correct dosing. :thumbsup

    If you are using a browser on your computer that allows bookmarks you can also bookmark it there, pretty sure most do. Not sure about phones and ipads, I'm a bit of a dinosaur in that regard.......:oops: maybe someone else will know that answer.

    Okay, thank you! Sometimes if it lets me, I'll copy and then paste things in my office program.

    Sorry, my bad, I assumed you wanted to use the BYC bookmark feature. :oops:

    Another option would be to create an article in the BYC member pages, then copy and paste links you like to there.
