    Just picked up Terra-vet 10. But I wanted to make sure it was safe to give to these 4 day old chicks. They were the ones stuck at the post office. I have one sick one. I've searched the first forums but didn't see dosage for babies. Thanks in advance.

    Terra-vet 10 is the same as duramycin 10 dosage. 1/2 tablespoon per gallon of water for the 400mg dosage or 1 tablespoon per gallon of water for the 800mg dosage. For either dosage, treatment period is up to 14 days. For chicks I recommend using the 400mg dosage.

    Thank you so much. Should I give them the pro-biotic after the antibiotic?
