Ive been looking through old posts and have only managed to confuse myself. I have Corid 9.6% Oral Solution. I believe it it undiluted. What is the dosage for it?

I forgot, can this be used as a preventative, if so is it still 5 days of doses? Or is that just for treatment?
Yes, it can, it is still a 5 day course no matter if it is an active case or not.

How long is the dilution good for?

You know, I have had it in the refrigerator for months at times and it still works just the same even for active cases. So keeping it refrigerated seems to keep shelf life longer.

I was reading the label last night and it said it can be added to drinking water - would that be safe for the girls? Or is it best to give it to them via syringe?

The vet comes Tuesday (finally!) and she told me to give them this, but not any details. And of course first time using this product. I cannot wait till all the newness is over and I've had the girls for so long that I have used and have everything (or nearly) they need!

If you have a coccidia problem, you need to drench each goat individually. That is the only way to be guaranteed that they get the correct dosage.

I always suggest giving it orally to each goat daily for 5 days, 1 x a day. \
This insures they all are dosed properly.
If you add it to their drinking water, not all will drink proper amounts to achieve the same effect.

That 21 day preventative course leads to more resistance. The 21 day course is meant to be put in their drinking water and you hope they drink enough to get proper dosage. Just do the regular 5 day course using the proper dosage for the 5 day course.
