Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
I am sorry to hear your puppies have these parasites. My name is ***** ***** I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
One cc and one ml are the same thing. What is the strength of your Corid, how many milligrams of amprolium in 1 cc/ml?
There are many species of Coccidia, and Corid only gets a couple of them; it is not the best thing to treat coccidia in dogs (it is not labeled for dogs, it is a product for large animals that have different parasites than dogs). Albon is more effective in dogs and puppies.
Let me know what other questions I can answer.
You can try it; it just might not work depending on which Coccidia your dogs have. Some vets will dispense enough medication to treat all the dogs in a home, if they have seen and diagnosed a parasite in a couple of your dogs. It would be better to get a medication that is actually labeled for dogs, not cattle. They have different parasites.
If it is 9.6 millgrams per cc/ml Give me a moment to check the dosage.
I think you mean 96 mg per ml, if it is a 9.6% solution.
The dose I find is 100 mg ( which would be abount 1ml or 1cc) in small puppies, daily for 7 to 12 days.
200 mg (2 ml/cc) for large puppies for 7 to 12 days.
300 to 400 mg (3 to 4 ml/cc) in dogs daily for 7 to 12 days.
I hope it helps.
My drug book says maximum 400 mg for a dog, once daily, 7 to 12 days. That would be 3 to 4 ml.
I would give 3 ml to smaller dogs and 4 to the larger ones.
