If affected birds are identified, all pigeons in the loft should be treated
1 capsule per bird per day into the crop. The capsule should be moistened with vegetable oil before given. The content of a capsule can also be dissolved in 25 ml (2 table spoons) of water and be given as sole drinking water.
Do not administer more than one capsule per pigeon per day. Overdose leads to a reversible loss of balance and coordination. If balance problems are seen in the pigeon, stop Chevicol treatment immediately, and administer Liviferm at the dose of 1 capsule per pigeon for 3 days, and the balance problems shall abate.
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
