CRD Powder 100g – Why We Like It:
CRD Powder contains the active ingredient chlortetracycline hydrochloride, which is in the same drug family as oxytetracycline, a good option for people that are seeking a tetracycline to treat bacterial issues in their flocks. This product is water soluble, just add to drinking water (for pigeons) and change it out every 24 hours. We do not recommend using galvanized waterers as it reduces the effectiveness of the product to just 12 hours. Plastic or Stainless steel are always best with administering any medication in your birds drinking water. Product is labeled for use in pigeons. Please consult your veterinarian for dosing in other birds.
We also carry Vetafarm Triple C, which also contains chlortetracycline hydrochloride, but is formulated for ornamental pet birds.

We highly recommend the use of a gram scale for measuring out powdered medications as weighing powdered drugs by volume results in inaccurate dosing. Household measuring tools also vary greatly causing inaccuracy.
