  1. This I found on the internet and have used it many times, saved many dogs! I hope someone will find this useful. :D


    Mix 5 ounces of Omega 3-Plus with 4 ounces of the Sulfadimethoxine 12 1/2% solution discussed above. This gives me a very palatable mixture of the 5% Albon (Rx) at a 75% or higher savings without the required prescription or the expense of a Vet office visit. I know many breeders that are paying $60 per pint for the 5% Albon (Rx) solution that they get from their Vet. This will give you approximately 2-gallons of the 5% Albon (RX) for only $75 rather than only 1-pint that a Vet will sell you for $60 -- you figure up the savings! Once you have this 5% Albon solution mix, each teaspoonful (5 mL) will contain 250 mg of Sulfadimethoxine. Dogs should receive 1 teaspoonful of this 5% Albon Oral Suspension mixture per 10 lb of body weight (25 mg/lb or 55 mg/kg) as an initial dose, followed by ½ teaspoonful per 10 lb of body weight (12.5 mg/lb or 27.5 mg/kg) every 24 hours thereafter. I recommend you give this treatment for a total of 10 days. The medication may be administered in food or water, given as a drench orally. I give each dog its own food and medicine in its own feed dish to make sure each dog is getting the proper amount of food and medicine. This Sulfadimethoxine 12 1/2% solution mixed with the Omega 3-Plus will save you hundreds of dollars a year. I urge all kennels to keep a gallon of each handy. This Sulfadimethoxine 5% solution mix has a wide margin for safety, is very easy to administer, and absolutely works miracles on getting rid of coccidiosis in your hounds. Since coccidiosis is so easily spread from one dog to the next, I highly recommend all hounds get a full treatment even if only one hound shows symptoms -- better to be safe than sorry.

    To help prevent coccidiosis, when the pups get weaned off the momma and start drinking water on their own...add SULMET to the water. It will help prevent coccidia.

    I've heard about something that farmers put in their chickens water and supposedly it helps dogs with coccidiosis. I'm not sure but is that what BBK is talking about?

    If you'll check in your local feed store they should have something with Sulfadimethaxone in it. Ours sells it in a 12.5% solution and it's added to the dogs water.

    coccidiosis is not so dangerous in young adults as it is in young pups. in pups it can be devistating. at first signs of the disease, 12 hours without water, and twenty four with out feed, while keeping them hydrated with i.v. fluids. and administer 1cc/20lb. of tylan 200 per day (once a day) for two days. after 12 hours with out water, admin. 1/2 water 1/2 gatoraide in ice cube form, let them lick the cubes, and if after an hour or so, they have not vomitted, add some water (or baby water) to the cubes. then let them have a few swallows only, every hour.
    after a period of twenty four hours with out solid foods, administer a light meal of oatmeal (watery), or boiled rice (watery), or a beef or chicken broth with crushed pieces of dry kibble ( very few pieces of kibble ). at first let the pup try it, taste test, for a few seconds and then wait an hour to see if it vomitts before allowing to eat the remainder of meal.
    if diarrhea persist through out treatment admin. endosorb as directed on label. endosorb is abvailable online at kvvet.com with out prescription.
    in most cases you will be on the highway to recovery in three days rather than the traditional 7-10 days with the sulfur treatments.
    if you have specific questions for us simply email or
    pm us. thanks for reading, and i hope this helps one
    or more down the road.

    what are the symptoms of coccidiosis?

    Also, if you have a pup with it should you treat all the dogs on your yard or just the other pups.

  17. I use to work for a vet (real nice vet) and she loved to eat the albon she said it tasted like butterscotch. YUMMY, I told her I will pass on that. LOL (she did not eat it but she said she tasted it before LOL)

    I have seen cases where it really proliferated due to unsanitary living conditions, but anyone can get it...we had a bad case with a litter of pups one yr as for some reason the bird population was outta control. Besides keeping the kennel pristinely clean, treatment with Albon...we also put a top on the top and 3 sides of the kennel.
    I also put out rice every day to try and kill the birds as they were WAY over populated that year.
