Treating Chicken Diseases

Treating Chicken Diseases


Various types of drugs have been commonly used in poultry to treat diseases that attack chickens. In the livestock industry, we often hear about the types of drugs that are commonly used, such as antibiotics (antibacterial), anthelmintics (deworming), antiprotozoa, and herbal medicines with various brands.
Regarding the treatment of chickens, apparently until now there are still some problems that arise. Ayu Miftahul Khasanah, Technical Education and Consultation PT. Medion, said that among them, some breeders are still not familiar with the active substance of the drug.
 “In the field, there are often inappropriate medical practices, raging from inappropriate drug doses, uneven administration, until the duration of drug administration is not in accordance with the rules of use," he said.
In addition, he also mentioned that Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is also a problem in the current treatment of chickens. So that in the future, these problems will have an effect on diseases that do not go away, trigger resistance to certain classes of drugs, and increase resistance in humans.
According to Ayu, it is necessary to adhere to the principles of treatment. First, the type of drug used must be in accordance with the disease, then the drug is able to reach the target organ and eliminate the infecting germs. In addition, the drug is available in sufficient levels, not lacking and not in excess so as not to become toxic levels. Medication must also be in sufficient time.
 “Based on this principle, we will try to make a method related to the right treatment. That is the right diagnosis, the right drug selection, the right application, the right dose, and the right time," he said. Before treating chickens, the diagnosis of the disease must be carried out correctly. He continued, the stages of diagnosis can be carried out by anamnesis or digging up information related to events in the cage before performing an examination of clinical symptoms.
Furthermore, he explained that the right choice of drug means that the drug is chosen according to the type of disease. Then the application of drug administration must also be appropriate, given orally or parenterally via intramuscular injection either in the chest or thigh, or subcutaneously. The selection of this drug application must also consider the suitability of the drug preparation and the severity of the disease in chickens. While on time, meaning that the time in administering the drug must be in accordance with the class. TROBOS
