    My birds have coccidia AND roundworm. I have searched previous forums along with internet search and I can't seem to get an answer on how to treat both at the same time. I have Wyzine and Corrid in my possession. I'm looking for help from individuals who can tell me their experiences with treatment and outcome.

    I know that Corid works great. I don't know about round worm. I've never had to deal with it so I can't say anything about worms. But what I do know is that cocci is a parisite and corid kills it so it might work with the worms too. Keep me updated.

    Corid will only treat Cocci.

    Wazine can be used for roundworms.

    Since both are to be used in water, I personally would treat for Cocci first. If you have a heavy infestation of worms, then you may want to consider using Valbazen or Fenbendazole for treatment of worms.

    Have you had a fecal float to confirm cocci and/or worms?

    Corid dosage for Cocci is 1 1/2 teaspoons Corid powder per gallon or 2 teaspoons of 9.6% Corid liquid per gallon
    Give for 5-7 days - make sure this is the ONLY water available during that time period. Mix a fresh batch at least once a day.
    After they finish treatment offer some poultry vitamins and probiotics/plain yogurt.

    Worming dosage for Valbazen 1/2 ml orally and then repeated in 10 days for each chicken or Fenbendazole (Safeguard, Panacur) at 1/4 ml per pound for 5 days in a row.

    For using Wazine follow your label instructions.

    Just my thoughts.
