    and I need to know how much Vetrx to add to add to how much water and how many drops to administer? Thanks! Unfortunately I have to get it through the mail so it will be a while before I can help the poor guy :(

    And as a side note I have seen that you're supposed to put some of the solution on the cleft of the chicken's mouth but I've seen people on here talking about dropping it directly into the chicken's eye which would be easier and work better (I would think).

    How do you know it has eye worms which from my readings is rare and occurs in tropical regions. Could you share a picture?

    I do not think vetrx will cure eye worms.

    It is labeled for "eye worm" (with the quotes, but I have no idea why "eye worm" needed quotes but scaly legs did not), but I have to admit that I am skeptical by looking at the ingredients.
