    same as adults. Mix to make stock and then mix in water as directed for adults. Mine is 1 oz stock to 1 gal water but if they are real sick use 2 oz to 1 gal water. I cant remember the stock. I have to check tomorrow.

    Quote:The treatment dosage is 16cc's per gallon of water for 3-5 days.
    The preventative dosage is 8cc per gallon of water. Give: 3 days (first week of life); 1-2 days every 3-4 weeks.
    Keep in mind that denagard only treats mycoplasma diseases/air sacculitis/infectious sinusitis and no other diseases. If your chicks dont have anything, I wouldnt treat them with anything.

    I have a friend that called me and was wondering what the dosage was for younger chicks and didn't know if it would be the same as for adults or like half of an adult dosage for young chicks.. Her chicks were sneezing and had some clear nasal discharge.
    Thanks so much!!
