Amprolium


Amprolium is a type of coccidiostat, used in the treatment or control of coccidiosis (Eimeria) in poultry and cattle. In dogs, the product is used to control Isospora. Amprolium is of the chemical group thiamine analog, which works by competitively inhibiting the active transport of thiamine, which is what the coccidia are sensitive to. If birds receive too much of this drug it can cause thiamine deficiency.

Form: Amprolium is sold as a solution (9.6% - 96 mg/ml) or soluble powder (20%).

Typical Dosage:
    36.3 - 113.5 g/ton in the feed or in the drinking water at 0.012% daily for 3-5 days. No other source of drinking water should be available to the birds during this time.

    Egg Withdrawal Period: No withdrawal period is needed.

    Storage: Store between 5°-25°C (41°-77°F) with brief excursions to 40°C (104°F).
