    My piperazine water add med says to retreat in 30 days. Is that too long to wait? I thought it was 10 to 15 days.

    Quote:I dont recommend redosing with wazine. Wazine only gets rid of large roundworms. Chickens get many types of worms and your redosing should be with a broad spectrum wormer such as valbazen liquid cattle/sheep wormer or Safeguard liquid goat wormer. Of course lower dosages are used for chickens.

    Mine is Pig Swig piperazine water wormer for swine & poultry. We don't seem to have any other kind of wormer around here. Still don't recommend retreatment?
