Amprolium 200 Soluble Powder is administered through the drinking water as an aid in the prevention and treatment of economically important strains of coccidiosis in poultry, including E. tenella, E. nexatix and most stains of E. acervulina.
Directions for use
1 level teaspoon (provided) = 3g, 1 rounded teaspoon = 5g.
Dosage for Prevention (coccidiostat)
Use 5g to 4 litres of drinking water (240mg amprolium per litre) for 24 hours every fourth day during periods of likely infection. This action helps control the coccidia by interrupting the life cycle and encourages immunity to develop.
Dosage for Treatment (coccidiocide)
Use 5g to 4 litres of drinking water (240mg amprolium per litre) CONTINUOUSLY for 5-7 days, reduce this to 3g to 4 litres for a further 5-7 days. This gradual reduction in the level of treatment assists the birds to develop immunity while maintaining some level of protection.
Premix the amount required into 1/2 litre of water first and when completely dissolved, add to drinking water, mixing thoroughly. A FRESH SOLUTION SHOULD BE PREPARED AND ADMINISTERED DAILY.
NIL WITHHOLDING PERIOD FOR EGGS
If you are unsure if your chicks/chickens/poultry have coccidiosis, see our information sheet ‘Coccidiosis – The Silent Killer‘ to read about the symptoms (including photos).
