    I recently purchased a bottle of the Denagard 12.5% (tiamulin hydrogen fumarate). I have a couple questions for those who use it to treat their chickens. My first question is in regards to dosage. Is 1 tablespoon per gallon of water the correct treatment dosage? My second question is whether or not the entire flock can be given the treatment dosage when only a few chickens have symptoms at this time.

    1 TBSP per gallon is the correct dosage. The stuff tastes disgusting and most birds will have a reduction in water consumption the first few days; this can be combatted by adding fruit juice, molasses, sugar, or corn syrup to the water.

    What are you treating? I wouldn't recommend treating until you have a definitive diagnosis. I personally started my flock on Dena after getting blood results back confirming MS and MG infections. If you already have your diagnosis, then yes, the whole flock can be treated. Denagard is very effective stuff.
