Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

While it is advisable to have these wee ones checked and/or a stool sample tested to confirm Coccidia and rule out other issues (ie feline distemper, giardia, cryptosporidium, etc), you can choose to use Corid (Amprolium) for these kittens. When doing so the dose is 60 to 100mg daily for one week. And I would note that if they won't take this in food, you may need to syringe feed the dose mixed with some meat baby food or canned kitten food.

Please take care,

Dr. B.
