    What exactly is Vet Rx, and why would you need to use it? How long does it stay good?

    Thank you

    Was just looking at it to buy myself from Jeffers Vet supply.

    VetRx Poultry Remedy: For use in chickens, bantams, ducks, and game birds. A few drops every few weeks can help relieve colds, croup, scaly legs and eye worms. Use also as a conditioner.
    2 oz $5.75 and 1 qt. + freight for 3 lbs = $46.95

    At least that's what the catalogue says.

    Does anyone else out there have a listof the actual ingredients? [​IMG]

    It is the chickens version of vicks vapor rub for humans with a few exceptions. VetRX can be used in water and injested whereas Vicks cannot, lol. It would be used for respiratory problems. Also used for leg mite control.

    Also, people have used it to 'dress' up a chicken before a show using it on legs, wattles, and comb.

    It has oil of camphor and oil of oregano and some other things in it. It cures nothing, but as she said, it's like Vicks.

    Thank you for making it more clear. I was just given a bottle of it for free, but had no idea what it was exactly.
