    I'm pretty wreckless, so I might use that.

    Truth be told, I found my old boy looking pretty off yesterday, so brought him in, warmed him up, tubed lots of fluids, then gave Corid, Baycox, and FishZole. :oops:

    Maybe try that again, but at a higher dose? And the Sulfa, you just gave that in the water, yes?

    Haha... hey you are on it! I’m so thankful for your help! I laugh when I read articles that say “ keeping chickens is easy! They take care of themselves” ok so I’ll try fish zole. It’s the “general cure” tabs. I think I saved a doseage somewhere and do the probiotics then do corid again in a few days? I think she just needs some tlc after that worming. But is it odd that the poop goes bloody to solid? I didn’t even do anything except probiotics

    When my vet had me treat for enteritis they had me give 50 mg/kg twice a day.

    2.6 / 2.2 x 50 = ~60 mg. If she were mine I would give 1/4 tab twice a day. Please do double check that this is metronizaole.

    That will work too, and might even be better.

    For the Tylan I feel like it’s not as harsh as the fish zole. Can I mix Tylan in some scrambled eggs? Will it be ok to give the vitamins/probiotics with Tylan? I’m so anti vitamins bc it can’t be mixed with corid haha

    For the Tylan to work properly it needs to be give 3-4 times a day. The dose is 50 mg per pound per day, so she needs 32.5 mg 4 times a day. Somewhere I have info on how much the powder weighs so I can go look for it and tell you how much to give if you want?

    I would appreciate any help with dosing. I can give 3-4 times for the next 3 days then I work 12 hr shift. Will that mess it up? I can give before and after work the last 2 days. Also she’s 2.6lbs
