Jefferspets.com is the cheapest that I've found and most reliable.
Yes, the dose is higher than the lable dose (which is for calves.)
I use it at the dose of 1/2 teaspoon per kid/ per bottle/ until they are about 3 weeks or 15#'s then I go up to 1 teaspoon per kid per lambar. I also start them at 5 days old. But, I live in the south so we have to fight coccidia from the beginning.
guess you could, as it's made to be water soluable...but, I generally stop using it when I wean and go to Corid every 21 days until the doelings/bucks are about 6-7 mo. old. By this age I definately would want to have to catch them every day and drench. I wouldn't depend on putting it in the water as to each kid getting enough and as we all know, one off-taste in the water bucket and water intake shuts down.
PS...who's being the smarty pants that labled *ME* as a first freshener
So with shipping from Jeffers it will cost me about $52. How long will this bag last? How many kids will it do-estimate? I am expecting kids from 9 doe's.
Kaye, you dose by bottle-what if they are getting more/less feedings? I do 4 for about a week then go to 3, then eventually to 2. Will I have to up the dose then?

I put it in the 1st bottle or lambar and the last of the day. My babies are on the lambar by 5 days old!
I raised 6 doelings and 2 bucklings and used 2 bags. They were weaned at about 3 months old and then went to corid.
I think for me the Decoxx-M in the lambar is just more convient than individually dosing twice a day. Once I finally get into a routine, it's easier for me to remember....meds go in lambar before I put the lid on.
