    my chickens have been on denaguard about two weeks ago and I've found an improvement in their health. the vet told me to give it for 5 days, but didn't mention about repeat administration. I would really appreciate any replies

    thank you :)

    Give it to them once a month for 5 days from now on.

    Isn't there a preventative dose as well as a treatment dose? I'm just asking, haven't ever used it.

    I think there is, but I won't be using it as a prevention,
    im just going to use it until their problem is cured :)

    Valley Vet Supply and QC Supply online have it for sale, and probably others.

    You have to order it on line. I got a one liter bottle for $40 & $10 for shipping. You put 15 cc in a gallon of water for treatment & about half that for preventative for 5 days in a month. You can eat the eggs, it doesn't affect them. I've got a flock of 6 so it's going to last me awhile.

    I was prescribed it from the vets. I use 2ml per litre of water.
