I just got back with some sulfadimethoxine soluble powder and am trying to figure out how much to give them in their water.

The quick and dirty method is to mix the entire amount into a known quantity of distilled water. 2 Tbs. = 1 oz./ 8 oz. per cup./ 6 cups = 48 oz. + 4 Tbs. = 50 oz.

Make sure the powder is completely dissolved and the resulting `suspension' shaken well. So, two Tbs. should yield ~ single gallon dose.


Store the unused portion in fridge should remain active for at least 6 wks (shake well before use).

I am wondering what I can do or/and what other drug to switch to. I was thinking Baycox, but maybe I should use Amprollium. Our state vet stated recently cocci is becoming more resistant to sulfa drugs.


Does someone know where I can get Amprolium? Is it going to cost an arm and 2 legs?

Thanks

baycox is not available in the USA as far as I know (and that would be my drug of choice) First state vet has amprollium... Peter will give the dosage instructions with that.

Oh I put light bulbs (60W) in their pens( 3ft X 3 ft) and I covered the pens with tarps and they are inside an insulated coop, but it was probably still only 50* in there last night. They are 8-9 weeks. Should I be keeping them warmer? I am thinking I might have to insulate their pens and put a larger light bulb in. (?)

It was 32* out last night.
