Treating Coccidiosis

When treating coccidisosis in my own birds I use the 0.024% severe outbreak dose for 5 days, then the 0.006% amount for 7-14 days. Since I use the liquid, I use 2 teaspoons per gallon for five days, then 1/2 teaspoon for 7-14 days.The FDA, FARAD, and the mfg's say this:"Administer at 0.012% in drinking water as soon as coccidiosis is diagnosed and continue for 3 days to 5 days (in severe outbreaks, give 0.024%); continue with 0.006% amprolium medicated water for an additional 1 week to 2 weeks. No other source of drinking water should be available to the birds during this time."Source: http://www.farad.org/vetgram/ProductInfo.asp?byNada=033-165
