DAC Adeno Extra – Why we like it:
DAC Adeno Extra Mix is an alternative to treating coccidiosis in birds that is resistant to amprolium and also effective against types of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria such as e-coli and salmonella. Easy to use water soluble powder if you are needing to treat multiple birds at once. This product is labeled for pigeons and hobby birds, for species specific dose consult your veterinarian.
Coccidiosis is common in young birds and also can affect older birds when their immune system is compromised. Coccidiosis is a parasitic disease of the intestinal tract of animals caused by coccidian protozoa. There are numerous strains of this protozoa and fast treatment is necessary for good outcomes.
Damage to the intestinal tract from coccidiosis can lead to compromised digestion and even death. Coccidiosis can reoccur due to exposure to a different strain than the precious infection or not properly medicating to cover the entire lifecycle of the organism. The most common treatment for coccidiosis is Amprolium, a coccidiostat, which is a thiamine uptake inhibitor. Cocci feeds on thiamine so this limits their food source, Amprolium, despite being the most used coccidiostat has only moderate efficacy.
When treating birds for coccidiosis we highly recommend not using a multivitamin with thiamine, especially if only using amprolium. Due to the moderate efficacy of amprolium we recommend using other treatment options such as this medication.
Adeno/E-coli syndrome, Paratyphoid and Coccidiosis.
Combination powder for use in drinking water for treatment of Adeno/E-coli Syndrome, Paratyphoid and Coccidiosis in pigeons.
The combination of trimethoprim and sulfa provides a good bactericidal effect; both antibiotics act in a different way. This combination is effective against Gram-positive bacteria (e.g. Staphylococcus and Streptococcus), Gram-negative bacteria (e.g. E-coli, Salmonella (Paratyphus)) and Coccidiosis.
5 grams of Adeno Extra Mix per 2 liters of drinking water for 5 to 7 consecutive days, or as prescribed by a veterinarian. We recommend repeating the course 10 days after the last dose.
For accurate dosing use of a gram scale is recommended over using kitchen measuring devices (measuring spoons) when working with antibiotics.
