    Hi friends!
    I am in need of the correct dosing of Corid for sheep.

    Also I need good dosing/med name for deworming sheep.


    Thank you!

    @Farmer Connie you think you could help me out here.
    I'm trying to find this out for a friend of mine.
    If you have a minute could you ask on BYH?
    Pweeeeze!?

    I posted the Corid question on the herd site. I will keep an eye on it.

    Cydectin is an oral sheep drench.

    QUOTES FROM THE SISTER SITE BYH:
    1. "10-15cc per 100lbs for 5-7 days via my vet. Don't forget to follow up with b complex shots when they're done. I'm sure you know that sulfa type meds are really better for cocci in sheep, but we also use Corid because it's cheap and it works." LIQUID CORID

    If I did the math correctly, @Farmer Connie's dose = ~20-35 mg/kg.

    One teaspoon of the Corid powder = 270 mg. Let me know if they have powder and if they need help calculating the dose.

    So this is for worms and not coccidiosis correct?

    Just getting back on & this is first stop. That quote was the first & only reply. I had to be busy for a bit & didn't fuel the thread by keeping it active. I will throw a big thanks there shortly.
    We got 2" rain.. that is 2' when you raise bacon from the ground up.
