Hello, Lyubov Viktorovna! I have a question for you. How many times to give Metronidazole to turkeys for the entire period of their life? (The Rose)
How to apply?
Hello Rose. Metronidazole is known to be used for the prevention of histomoniasis (enterohepatitis or typhoid hepatitis) in turkeys. The drug is taken orally in the form of aqueous solutions. In theory, if you bought the medicine in a pharmacy, and not asked from a friend or neighbor, then there should be instructions for use. However, we recall that there are two types of use.
Based on the first, it is worth to give medicine 3 times a day, at 0.10 mg per kilogram of turkey live weight. The second option says that you can give once a day with food. Dosage 1.5 g per 1 kg of feed. Such prevention in both cases lasts 10 days. Then remember that the drug is calculated not from the weight of the tablet, but from the amount of the active substance in it. For greater convenience, below are tables with dose calculation.
How many times to produce treatment?
Starting such preventive treatment is already the 20th day of the turkey. For greater reliability, it is possible to repeat the dosage regimen 10 days from the end of the last dose. But if you do not want to feed a bird with various substances so often, then do the first scheme in 20 days, and then repeat it if necessary, but not earlier than 10 after the previous reception.
