How much corid do you give to a puppy?

I know that corid is toxic if I give to much, I need to know the right dosage for a puppy that is ten lbs and one that is 15 lbs.


Answer by  Lottadogs (1258)

The off-label dosage of 9.6% solution Corid for dogs is 1 cc per 5 pounds of body weight in drinking water for 21 days. Fenbendazole may be a safer choice.

Honestly, this question cannot be answered without knowing more specifications about the medication and your pets. For example, what is the concentration of the amprolium (Cortid)? is this exact weight or "guesstimated"? Cortid is a dangerous drug which can lead to degenerative encephalomyelopathy if given improperly. I would suggest using a safer medication like ponazuril at a dosage of 0.1mL/lb.

Corid is NOT labeled or approved for use in dogs! If you have an issue w/coccidiosis in your dog, PARTICULARLY a PUPPY, you need to go to your vet, IMMEDIATELY.

You really should consult with a vet on this type of thing. You could end up doing more harm than helping the puppy. It is always best to ask for the correct dosages from a licensed vet that knows your puppy and their health problems.

The best advice here is to always ask a vet. A vet can give you dosage instructions as well as tell you what to do if something does happen to go wrong. If you are truly against asking a vet then you can try Liquid, NOT tablets, at 1 cc per 5 pounds in their water for 21 days.

Before you give your puppy anything that might be toxic to it, check with a vet to make sure it won't do any harm.
