I have been battling coccidiosis that keeps coming back (blood in stool) in one or two (out of 23) birds. Corid helps for a bit then after a couple weeks of no corid the blood comes back. So I got a sulfadimethoxine powder that is 25% medicine. I don’t want to dose them all because they don’t seem to all need it. What would be a good oral dose to give the affected birds individually? I’ve read 50mg/100kg. Can someone help me figure out how much I would put in a syringe? I figured 1tsp and 10ml water but I could be way off. Thanks!

Birds are 15 weeks and they were on corid for 8 days, finishing about 4 weeks ago. This was their 4th time on corid.

Have you gotten a fecal float by your vet to confirm coccidiosis? Can you post a picture of the label of the sulfadimethoxine product you have?
