Hello Everyone,

I have a question about the dosage for eight - 5lb standard size 7wk old puppies using Sulfadimethoxine 12.5% liquid. I have a gallon of it. I also have a gallon of the Dyne but do not need a huge bottle of this mixture. Just enough to treat 8 puppies. My Vet said I don't need to mix it with the Dyne I can just give it to them straight and then maybe give them 1ml of the Dyne afterwards to help wash it down because it is really yucky.
I have already treated them for Giardia using Safeguard for 6 days. Symptoms are still present. Loose stools. Still eating and drinking normally. Still active and playful but they go home soon and do not want to send home puppies with loose stools.

I wanted to try the Sulfadimethoxine to see if it will clear this up. I have also tried using a probiotic Fortiflora in their food as well as pumpkin and 1ml doses of Kaolin Pectin..not all 3 at once but nothing has seemed to make a huge difference in their stool consistency.

This is not the first time I have had loose stools in my puppies but this is the first time in a long time and the fact I can't get rid of it is frustrating.

Can you give me the dosage for just giving them the sulfa straight in ML measurements?
I would be forever grateful and any other advice you might have.

Thank you,
Barbara

P.S. Stool sample came back clear. Vet gave me the dosage for 2lb puppies, I need the right dosage and do not want to have to call her. She has MS so her hours are only 2 days a week. I don't have time to wait.

Sulfadimethoxine 12.5% solution contains 3.75 grams per ounce. This is 3750 mg. per ounce , one ounce= 30 ml , so one ml. of the Sulfadimethoxine 12.5% contains 125mg of the sulfa med.

Dosing: Initial Dose: 25 mg/lb (55 mg/kg) of animal body weight. Subsequent Daily Doses: 12.5 mg/lb (27.5 mg/kg) of animal body weight. ( 10 days )

Dose for 5# dog = 1 ml.(sulfadimethoxine 12.5%) for first day. Second day thru last day .5 ml. (1/2 ml.)
(sulfadimethoxine 12.5%) .

Thank you so much!!!!! You have no idea how much this helps me and essentially my puppies and their families. I am horrible at figuring out math equations/dosages etc. I have been trying to reach my vet all week. I will start the medicine today. They're all still eating/drinking like piggies, healthy, fat and bouncy so if it is COCCIDIA it sure does not seem to be affecting them besides the loose stools..which always worries me. If it is Giardia then the safeguard did not work. Hopefully this will make a difference.

Thank you,
Barbara

Husband found 3 abandoned puppies on the side of the road right in time...It was suppose to freeze that night! Needless to say, they have made themselves home in my bathroom and are much happier now that they have my love and support. I have read previous posts about treating for coccidia. I still need help! These pups are weighing at about 5 lbs. However, I was interested in buying/trying the sulfadimethoxine soluble powder:

(5 packets are equivalent to 1 gallon of Di-Methox 12.5% solution.)
Each Packet Contains: 3.34 oz (94.6 g) Sulfadimethoxine in the form of the soluble Sodium Salt and Disodium Edetate.

I too am bad with math! How do I go about mixing and dosing these three 5lb. puppies.....as well as an 11lb. adult cat?
Thank you in advance!

Thank you Oldhounddog! Poor pups were infested with all kinds of parasites! I have treated them with fenbendazole...and sure enough, all kinds of worms are being eliminated. Its been a little bit of a struggle but puppies are doing great...and so am I! Lol I will still be treating for coccidia asap. Once again, thank you for your swift reply. I will keep in touch. Have a great day!

So I just read over the internet that Fenbendazole can also treat coccidia....? Instead of a 3 day treatment, its a 5 day treatment! Hmmmm....
Don't believe everything you read on the internet.... as far as I know that is false info but Fenbendazole CAN treat Giardia, and its a 5 day treatment :)

Hi there, I have been a breeder of purebred dogs for years and have never ever had Coccidia but I recently relocated my kennel and somehow now have Coccidia in my pups and in my adults dogs. I have just finished building the new kennel and none of the dogs has set foot in the new kennel or new dog runs. I have set up isolation/treatment pens to try to get rid of this before moving anyone into the new kennel.

I have the sulfadimethoxine and the Dyne High Density. I have 14 adult Irish Wolfhounds to treat. I have read the dose for the sulfa but what is the mix for the dyne product to go with it?

I plan to isolate the dogs for 30 days to ensure treatment is done thoroughly. 1) treat with the sulph/dyne solution 2) keep the dogs in isolation pen with concrete floors so that they can be pressure washed/amonia treated daily (move dogs to holding pen to do this). 3) Bath dogs and foot soak before moving into new kennel. Is there anything else I should do??

My newly built outdoor exercise pens are 60x40' and all dirt forest floor in them and have now had infected dogs in them :( Is there anything I can do to treat such a large area to use again in the spring? I have a large propane tiger torch that I've been told I can scorch the ground all over with. Any suggestions how to treat such a large area or how long before it would ever be usable again?

Hello Julie,
Not sure if you've also read the original article on the treatment but here is the link:
http://www.beaglesunlimited.com/health/coccidiosis-diagnosis-treatment-and-prevention but it may be helpful as well.

The following are recommendations for eliminating coccidia from kennels and homes (Quoted from the original article):

:black_small_square:treat all dogs with sulfadimethoxine for 10 days
:black_small_square: disinfect kennel areas, etc, with quaternary ammonium disinfectants which are effective in inactivating coccidia oocysts
:black_small_square: bathe dogs with shampoo to remove all fecal matter, rinse with water
:black_small_square: rinse dogs with quaternary ammonium disinfectants, then water
:black_small_square: Allow kennels to dry thoroughly for several days
:black_small_square: Retreat with sulfadimethoxine for 7 days
:black_small_square: Treat any new dogs with sulfadimethoxine (e.g. Albon) for 10 days even if they test negative for coccidia because it is so hard to detect in fecal tests

Good Luck! I Love Irish Wolfhounds!
Barbara

I have read the dose for the sulfa but what is the mix for the dyne product
Here is the explanation taken from the original article:
Mix 5 ounces of Dyne High Calorie Supplement with 4 ounces of the Sulfadimethoxine 12 1/2% solution discussed above. This gives me a fairly palatable mixture of the 5% Albon (Rx). Once you have this 5% Albon solution mix, each teaspoonful (5 mL) will contain 250 mg of Sulfadimethoxine. Beagles 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 or at least use it as a drench to be given orally to each dog/puppy.

I am a little confused about using sulmet. I have a limited amount of Sulmet 12.5% drinking water solution. I have 3 9-week old puppies who need to be treated for coccidia. Can I use Sulmet as a push in a syringe straight from the bottle or does it have to be cut with Dyne? If not necessary to cut, what dosages should I use. The pups are about 10 lbs. each
