    I'm putting together a Chicken First Aid kit and am trying to find sav-a-chick and the medication for coccidiosis (the name escapes me right now!)

    I've looked in my local feed store with no luck, are these items stocked at vets or any other pet stores?

    it seems that these items are freely available from American online stores but they don't ship to Aus [​IMG] [​IMG]

    There are other Aussies on here who might be of help. Corid is a brand name for amprollium. I think is is called coxoid or amprol in some countries. Save-a-Chick is just vitamins or vitamins and electrolytes for poultry, so you should be able to find an equivalent brand there.

    Get corid for cattle and vitamins and electralytes for cattle and you'll get a whole lot more for a whole lot less money

    I think it's called Amprolium 200 in Australia
