Today, I will be teaching about drug administration in poultry. Infection and diseases have been the main way we farmers suffer losses in our farms. If you are planning to set up a farm to practice animal husbandry, using these drugs formulation which I have written would serve you better and keep your farm free from diseases. If you have a farm already and your previous drug formulation is not leading you to the right point kindly change to this which I have been using and it’s 100% tested.
If this is your first time going into poultry business all you have to do is to go to your nearby vet and buy the following drugs which will be used for its administration.
Lasota, also buy milk to mix with it for Newcastle virus vaccination.
Gumboro, also buy milk to mix with it for gumboro disease vaccination.
Any pox cure drug or you may use palm oil as instructed.
Don’t forget to deworm using the following leaves as written in this article.
Day 1: multivitamins or Glucose D.
Day 2 -6: antibiotics + anticocci + multivitamin
Day 7-8: deworm using onions or garlic or pawpaw leaves (1 small bulb in 1 drinker)
Day 14: Lasota + milk
You may ignore the Lasota vaccine and rather treat Newcastle Learn more. Day 15 -19: antibiotics + anticocci
For anti-coccidiosis, use any drug containing amprolium for the best treatment. Anidone anti-coccidiosis or dramacine forte is recommended because both contain amprolium.
Day 21: gumboro + milk
If you are using Dramacine forte anti-coccidiosis, introducing gumboro drug is not recommended because dramacine forte cures both.
Day 24-25: deworm organically
Day 30 -34: antibiotics + anti cocci
Day 35: Give them poxcure or use raw palm oil in water (2 spoons in drinker)
Day 38-39: deworm organically
Day 44 -48: antibiotics + anti cocci
Day 52-53: deworm organically
Day 58 -62: antibiotics + anti cocci
There are other medicated drugs that can be used to deworm a flock but most times we choose the organic ways to reduce cost.
Note: Do not deworm birds with medicated drugs under Day 1 to 30.
Do not administer Lasota or gumboro vaccine when your flocks are weak/feeble else you may lose your entire flock, its recommended to treat a flock before introducing Vaccine else feeble ones dies, Learn more about vaccination and treating.
When you administer Lasota, don’t allow your flock to drink it more than 2 hours, once they have drinks for one hour, remove the drinker out from the farm even if they haven’t finished the vaccine water.
Warning: If you fail to remove the vaccine water after 2 hours, this might cause harm to your birds.
To enable this part, on day of vaccination, make sure your flock are healthy, starve your flock both water and food for at least 5 hours. After 5 hours has passed, you should introduce the vaccine and food to them so that the exhaust it within an hour.
