Coccidiosis treatment and prevention directions

Di-Methox Soluble Powder



Sulfadimethoxine
(AgriLabs) For treating foot rot, bacterial pneumonia, calf diphtheria, and shipping fever in beef cattle, dairy calves, and heifers. Also for coccidiosis and fowl cholera in meat producing turkeys and in broiler and replacement chickens for treatment of coccidiosis, fowl cholera and infectious coryza. Dissolve 1 pkt in 50 gal for chickens or 100 gal for turkeys. 1 pkt treats (six) 600 lb cattle.




5 packets will make 1 gallon of solution but I like to divide it up and make smaller batches (once mixed with water please store in the fridge till used up or for 2 weeks then dispose of it). 
Break down of dosage

1 package of powder will make 3 cups of solution
1/2 package of powder will make 1 and 1/2 cups of solution

Goat dosage
1cc of solution per 5lbs of goats for day 1 and 1 cc of solution per 10 lbs of goat for days 4 thru 5  as a prevention (spring and fall each year)
1cc of solution per 5 lbs of goats for 10 days as a treatment if you have an active case of cocci

For every 4 goats being treated add the needed amount of solution to 1 gallon of water along with 1 packet of koolaide and 1 cup of sugar and stir well.  Put this solution out each morning as the only source of water until completely consumed.  If they drink it all before the 24 hours is up then put out a bucket of plain water till time to put out a new bucket of solution water.

This is how I treat and prevent coccidiosis for my herd and does not replace vet care.  If you are unsure of how to treat your goats please consult your vet.

12.5% Sulmet liquid solution



  • Goat dose: Straight from the bottle. Give Orally directly in the goats mouth or if you have a few goats to treat use -
1cc of solution per 5lbs of goats day 1 and 1 cc per 10 lbs of goats for day 4 thru 5  as a prevention (spring and fall each year)
1cc of solution per 5 lbs of goats for 10 days as a treatment if you have an active case of cocci

For every 4 goats being treated add the needed amount of solution to 1 gallon of water along with 1 packet of koolaide and 1 cup of sugar and stir well.  Put this solution out each morning as the only source of water until completely consumed.  If they drink it all before the 24 hours is up then put out a bucket of plain water till time to put out a new bucket of solution water.
For example if you have a 50 lb goat on day one she would need 10 cc of sulmet  on day 1 and on day 2 throught 5 you would need 5 cc of sulmet.
