    Hey Folks, I have Corid (amprolium) for coccidiosis, and Avio Ekto/Endo drops (Ivermectin) for worms. The drops do -not- say they take care of tapeworms, but the Ekto/Endo -tablets- additionally contain Praziquantel which -does- work against tapeworms. So as an alternate cocci treatment I'm...

    The vet recommended that I use Corid, but I was wondering if anybody else might have any suggestions? I am giving her Baytril right now, would it be okay if I got the Corid and used it at the same time as the Baytril? I also need a probiotic to give her, but I'm not sure which one is the best...
