If affected birds are identified, all pigeons in the loft should be treated
1 sachet (2.5g) in 2 litres of drinking water (daily requirement for 40 pigeons) per day
Do not administer more than one sachet of Chevicol per 40 pigeons per day. Overdose leads to a reversible loss of balance and coordination. If balance problems are seen in the pigeons, stop Chevicol treatment immediately, and administer Liviferm at the dose of 1 sachet per 2 litres (40 pigeons) for 3 days, and the balance problems shall abate.
If increased drinking water is required during treatment (e.g. in the hatching period or hot weather), do not dilute medicated water. Instead, provide fresh water after the medicated water is finished.
In severely affected animals the caseous deposits in the throat should be moistened with the above mentioned solution, and 3-5 ml be given directly into the crop.
Do not provide bath water during the treatment period.
Prepare fresh solution daily. If the water intake in diseased birds is strongly reduced, the application should be changed to a capsule application or to a parenteral therapy.
To control recurrent trichomonas infection in pigeons, preventive treatment should generally be carried out twice a year at an interval of 3 to 4 months. This treatment is given to all pigeons in the loft. Duration of application: 3 days
