Coxoid is a water-soluble treatment for coccidiosis and is added to the drinking water for 7 days. A 112ml bottle will treat approximately 30 birds.
Coxoid is a medication that vets will sometimes suggest to control coccidiosis in chickens. It is a relatively common disease, and Coxoid has been used by vets ‘off label’ because it isn’t licensed for use in food-producing animals.
Coccidiosis is a very common problem where all birds are potential carriers, it is often brought about by stress. Birds can quickly lose weight and condition and become listless, droppings can become watery and contain blood – common in young chicks.
Please note that Coxoid is only licensed for use in pigeons.
Contains amprolium hydrochloride 3.84% w/v.

Add Coxoid to the drinking water at a rate of 28ml per 4.5 litres (1fl.oz. per gallon) for 7 days. In serious outbreaks of coccidiosis, treatment at half strength (14ml per 4.5 litres) should be continued for a furthur 7 days.
