    Does anyone out there know if eggs can be eaten after a chicken has been treated with Corid?

    Did not know that. I have used Denegard before and there is no withdrawal period for the eggs.

    Denagard ...to treat Swine for dysentery and pneumonia?
    Can you cite where your info is from?

    "Withdraw medicated water 3 days before slaughter after treatment at 3.5 mg per pound and 7 days before slaughter following treatment at 10.5 mg per pound body weight."

    Denagard and it's active ingredient aren't listed in FARAD.org as approved for any chickens, so there's no known withdrawal period. It's listed for pigs, not poultry. Look up Corid there. Mary
