    Corid or Amprol you should find in the cattle section of most feed stores. The powder dose is 4.5 grams per US Gallon, which I believe works out to be ~1.5 teaspoons. The liquid dose is 2 teaspoons per gallon.

    I want to know how much hope I have... I caught one of my 16 week old pulleys acting lethargic yesterday afternoon and she didn't get started on Corid until this afternoon. She is fighting me to take the medicine that I syringe in her mouth.... Do I have a chance?

    I think that there is a good chance of recovery if you can get her to drink enough Corid water. Try giving her some feed moistened in Corid water as well, to make sure that she gets enough of the Corid.

    She has no Interest what so ever in the feed. I am going to try to sprinkle a teeny tiny few specks of corid on a meal worm or watermelon to see if she wants that. I am so worried! I fear she is too far gone is she is being finicky with taking water from a syringe. I just hope to get enough in her so that it starts working and she can get better... Not worse.
