    Hi,

    I've been giving some of the chickens sulmet according to the directions (2 Tb. per gallon of water) but not sure of two things: How long should I give it and do I have to change the water every day. (That's what I've been doing and it's almost gone).

    The liquid dosage is 2 Tbsp per gallon, however the powder form is 1 teaspoon per gallon.

    The length of treatment depends on what you're treating:

    Coryza - 2 days
    Fowl Cholera/Pullorum - 6 days
    Coccidiosis - full dose for 2 days, then reduce amount to one-half for 4 more days

    Water should be changed daily.
