If you own poultry, you are sure to have plenty of opportunities to act as their veterinarian. It is so helpful to have on hand some of the basic medicines and supplies that are commonly used so you can save a trip to the feed store or Tractor Supply. Here is a list of supplies we keep in our first aid kit:
Nutra-Drench - For a quick shot of
nutrients or to pink up pale combs
Apple Cider Vinegar (an unfiltered ACV, such as Bragg's is most beneficial) - Add several teaspoons/
gallon of water as a natural worm preventative and to benefit the digestive
health of your birds. (Do not use in galvanized waterers) It also can be
diluted and used as a disinfectant when cleaning your coop.
Syringes and needles (purchase from vet or at Tractor Supply) - To administer medicine
