Coccidia are protozoans that infect poultry and other animal’s GI tract. Each species is host specific, meaning that the coccidia that affect your birds are not the same as the ones that can affect your dog or cat or even yourself. They are very common and can usually be found in most any person’s backyard flock. Although they are very common and most birds have them, they usually don’t cause a problem unless found in high numbers or in birds that are immune-compromised. Chicks are very susceptible and can die, even with treatment. Some birds are able to develop immunity to the parasite after long or repeated exposures.
Structurally, CORID mimics thiamin (Vitamin B1) which is required by coccidia for normal growth and reproduction. When coccidia ingest CORID, they experience thiamin deficiency and starve from malnutrition. CORID stops coccidia at a critical stage in the host animal’s small intestine to prevent more damaging coccidiosis in the large intestine. By acting on the young asexual stages of the coccidia life cycle, CORID allows exposure to first-generation schizonts, so the host animal can develop natural immunity to coccidia. This makes CORID effective as a preventive therapy.
Add 3 fl oz Corid 9.6% Oral Solution to 1 pt of water and, with a dose syringe, give 1 fl oz of this drench solution for each 100 lb (45 kg) body weight. This will provide a dose of approximately 10 mg amprolium/kg (2.2 lb) body weight. Give daily for 5 days. Secondly, what does Corid treat in chickens? Corid – amprolium Corid 9.6% Solution aids in the treatment and prevention of coccidiosis in poultry. If using on meat poultry, it is important to withdraw 24 hours before slaughter.
In this manner, is Corid an antibiotic?
Amprolium is a drug that has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Amprolium IS NOT an antibiotic. Amprolium allows some of the coccidia to remain in the system, stimulating creation of antibodies to develop against the disease.
Is Corid safe for horses?
All three, especially Rumensin®, are toxic to equines (horses, donkeys and mules). Be sure to keep equines out of medicated feed or water. Once an animal shows signs of coccidiosis, treat it with Albon®, Sulmet® or DiMethox®. Corid® (amprolium) is another treatment alternative.
Features of Corid Amprolium For Chickens
- Administer CORID when experience tells you conditions are favorable for the development of coccidiosis or any time cattle are exposed to unusual stress
- CORID effectively breaks the coccidia life cycle before a clinical coccidiosis outbreak can occur
- Preventing coccidiosis allows animals to absorb nutrients naturally, so they maintain the ability to fight stress
- CORID helps to reduce the spread of infective coccidia oocysts
Uses/benefits of Corid Amprolium For Chickens
- Unique flexibility. CORID is labeled to both help prevent and treat bovine coccidiosis (bloody scours) caused by Eimeria bovis and E. zurnii in calves.
- Administration flexibility. CORID can be administered in drinking water, as a drench, or in-feed to prevent or treat bovine coccidiosis.
- CORID should be used on a group, pen or herd basis. When one or more calves show clinical signs of coccidiosis, it’s likely the rest of the group has been exposed to coccidia and all calves in the group, pen or herd should receive CORID.
- Palatable. CORID is palatable and readily accepted by cattle.
- Safety. CORID is safe when administered at the recommended dose.
- CORID is palatable and readily accepted by cattle
- Treatment: 16 oz. to 100 gallon water for 5 days
- Prevention: 8 oz. to 100 gallon water for 21 days.
