    Hello!

    Quick question and hoping I didn't miss someone already asking this! We just got a little ND doeling who is 3 months old. I learned after getting her that she didn't have any Coccidiosis prevention treatment - is it too late to give her some preventative medication? I currently only have Corrid (Covid is making it hard to get anything like Di-Methox where I live) and just want to check before starting the prevention treatment.

    Thank you all so much!

    You can do that and Corrid is just fine. But it is better to do a fecal first.

    I agree..do a fecal first to make sure she needs treatment. If her fecal is clean then she may have built a resistant to coccidia which is good.

    If you can't get a fecal do corid.

    Mixing undiluted Corid liquid:
    Mix 6 tablespoons corid to 16 oz water....
    Or the Pre mixed- Shake well before use.
    solution give as follows
    then dose it at ...
    30cc per 100lbs
    15cc per 50lbs
    7.5 per 25 lbs
    treat individually for 5 days


    20% Powdered mixture: 3 ounces(10.5 tblspns) to 1 quart water
    Mix solution well. Shake well before use.
    then dose it at ...
    30cc per 100lbs
    15cc per 50lbs
    7.5 per 25 lbs
    and so on
    treat individually for 5 days
