VetRx Poultry Aid
This treatment applies to the following species:
BASED ON A FORMULA IN USE SINCE 1874.
Use on all varieties of poultry, including Bantams, Ducks, Turkeys, Geese and Game Birds. For the support of healthy upper respiratory function.
Dosages And Preparing Solution
The directions below apply to bantams and mature poultry of similar size, unless otherwise noted. For larger or smaller birds change the amount used in proportion to size of the bird.
Use VetRx warm, unless otherwise specified. To warm, open cap. Put bottle in small pan of water. Heat at medium temperature. Always test temperature of product before use.
To prepare solution, add one teaspoonful of warm VetRx to one cup very warm water. Note: VetRx mixes with hot water, but floats on top of cold water. This characteristic can be helpful. Place a few drops of warm VetRx, straight from the bottle, down throat of bird at night. Also, rub some warm VetRx from the bottle over head of birds and under wings. Stronger mix of one teaspoonful VetRx in one-half cup of hot water can also be used. Swab throat and wash head and eyes four or five times per day. Keep nostrils, eyes and throat as clean as possible.
Flock Care -- Warm VetRx solution can be sprayed over as many birds as possible. Use any small sprayer, and keep sprayer in a pan of hot water before using. You can also select individual birds to rub warm, full strength VetRx on heads, eyes and under wings. When birds sleep with head under wings they will breathe the VetRx vapors. Also provide plenty of clean, cool drinking water for the flock. Add a few drops of VetRx in drinking water each time you change it. It will float on the water and get on the beaks and nostrils of the birds each time they drink.
Vaporizer -- If you decide to use vaporizer make certain that it is a hot water model. Follow manufacturer’s directions. Fill cup with VetRx full strength and operate vaporizer for at least one hour while birds are roosting.
TO HELP KEEP BIRDS HEALTHY sprinkle a few drops of VetRx in litter every four or five days. Add a few drops to drinking water every time you change it. Rub one or two drops of warm, full strength VetRx under wings. This will not only help birds when they put heads under their wings, but their body heat will send aromatic vapors throughout coop benefiting all birds.
For Show Birds -- To keep birds healthy while traveling to and from shows, place a few drops of warm VetRx under one wing. It does not stain, or harm feathers, wings or color. Rubbing VetRx on legs brings out the true color and keeps legs healthy and clean. When birds return from shows, keep them separated from the flock for one week. Wash feet and heads with warm solution, and rub warm VetRx from the bottle on heads and under wings.
When shanks of bird appear dry, rub them with a small amount of cold VetRx from the bottle. If needed apply cold VetRx and rub in thoroughly all over shanks and toes. Repeat every three days until birds legs are no longer dry.
VetRx can be safely applied to birds cleft palate to keep their eyes clear and clean.
Directions For Use
-- hold bird under your arm so you have both hands free. Open birds mouth while turning its head to side and tilting down so you can see the cleft in the roof of the mouth. Dip a small cotton swab into warm VetRx. Press swab right into cleft. Do this slowly. Watch for VetRx to come from each side of birds beak and corner of each eye. Clean eyes and rest bird. You may have to repeat treatment two or three times.
FEED FOR BREEDING
This will help keep breeding birds healthy.
Directions For Use
-- Keep three quarts of lay mash indoors for a few hours until it reaches room temperature. Warm a bottle of VetRx. Pour entire bottle into mash and mix well by rubbing mash between hands. Let stand in warm room overnight. Next day put this treated mash in container with a tight lid and let stand for about 2 weeks. Mix 1 Tablespoon of treated mash, once daily, in feed for every 20 birds. If feeding 10 birds or less, one teaspoon is enough. Be sure to stir treated mash thoroughly into feed.
Of course, while you are caring for poultry and other birds, you will want to follow usual precautions. If birds are sick, isolate them from healthy ones. Clean all coops and lofts. Keep birds as clean and dry as possible and free from drafts. When birds have been to a show, it is wise to isolate them from the rest of the flock for several days.
