Amprol 128 powder treats a common ailment in chicks and flocks: coccidiosis
. It works great—but you know what's a pain in the neck? Dosing. These medication packets are
made for commercial flocks and include enough medication for
hundreds of gallons of water. What a hassle for a small-scale poultry keeper. We asked the manufacturer to come up with smaller treatment packages, but they couldn't easily do that.
So instead, we've made it easy for you by including a dosing scoop and resealable bag with your purchase. Each scoop medicates exactly one gallon of water. The resealable bag keeps out moisture and prevents spillage.
Amprol 128 (amprolium
) 20% Soluble Powder is a medication that can be safely used for the prevention and treatment of coccidiosis. It's safe to use during all life cycles of birds from day-old chicks to adult chickens, including laying hens, breeding flocks, and meat birds. It can also be given to turkeys and pheasants. Benefits:
- No egg withdrawal period
- Does not interact with other coccidiostats and/or antibiotics
- Effectively treats coccidiosis in chicks, laying hens, breeding flocks, meat birds, turkeys, and pheasants.
This kit includes:
(1) package of Amprol 128 Soluble Powder, 10 oz., (1) resealable bag, and (1) dosing scoop
Dosing scoop directions: Mix fresh each day and start treatment at first signs of coccidiosis. Add one scoop per gallon of water for 3 to 5 days. (In severe outbreaks, use 2 scoops per gallon.) Then continue to give a half a scoop per gallon for an additional 1 to 2
weeks. No other source of drinking water should be available to the birds during this time. See package for complete dosing information. Packet instructions translation: The instructions on the packet refer to concentrated solutions of .006% to .024%. Here's how the dosing scoop translates to those concentrations.
- 1/2 scoop per gallon of drinking water makes 0.006% solution.
- 1 scoop per gallon of drinking water makes 0.012% solution.
- 2 scoops per gallon of water makes 0.024% solution.
If no improvement is noted within 3 days, have the diagnosis reconfirmed and follow the instructions of your veterinarian
or poultry pathologist. Losses may result from intercurrent disease or other conditions affecting drug intake which can contribute to the virulence of coccidiosis under field conditions.
Storage & Handling: Store Amprol between 41° - 77° F with brief excursions to 104°F. Avoid prolonged exposure to high humidity.
