    [​IMG] I like the product Vet Rx, it looks like this: http://www.amazon.com/Vet-Rx-Bird-2-oz/dp/B0002YFA04 and is useful for many applications listed here: http://www.jefferslivestock.com/ssc/assets/label_info/16803.htm I've used it when my chickens get wheezy, sneezy & congested, & it seems to help.

    [​IMG] But I do NOT like the little bottles it comes in!!! It's a stiff plastic bottle with a flat dispenser cap. You just lift the lid of the cap and squeeze drops out of the hole in the cap. But I at least find it difficult to get just a few drops to come out at a time, the plastic is so stiff you have to squeeze hard to dispense the liquid. So that more than one drop comes out at a time. And because it's flat it's difficult to direct the drops with precision exactly where you want them to go. I find that a lot of it runs down the side of the bottle, and onto my hands. If you drop the bottle on the floor/ground then some will spill out before you right it. And if you heat the bottle as directed then the bottom gets distorted, bulging out, and it's impossible to set straight upright again.

    I will still continue to use this product, but I will decant the medicine into another better bottle, one with a spout and made of more pliable plastic. I am going to contact the company to lodge my complaint about their bottles. Has anyone had similar experience with this? If so, please contact the manufacturer too, there's clout in numbers! http://www.goodwinol.com/
