    The directions below are what the label says. It is for use in water, not given orally undiluted. If you have to jump start a treatment, I would only give a drop or two orally, and then give it in the mixed solution. Here is a link to a website for Coxoid: https://www.petmeds.co.uk/Harkers-Coxoid/p/I0041262

    Active Ingredients
    Coxoid contains Amprolium Hydrochloride 3.84% w/v.
    Dosage and Administration:
    Add Coxoid to the drinking water at a rate of 28ml per 4.5 litres (1fl.oz. per gallon) for 7 days. In serious outbreaks of coccidiosis, treatment at half strength (14ml per 4.5 litres) should be continued for a furthur 7 days.
    The birds should not have access to unmedicated drinking water during the treatment period. Any medicated water which is not consumed within 24 hours should be discarded.
