New introductions and birds in quarantine should be routinely treated at recommended rates. Resistance to antiprotozoal drugs is common. Unlike the other chemicals in its group, Ronidazole is safe to administer at up to 5 times recommended rate. In difficult situations treatment at 5X dose for 3 days then normal dose for 4 days has been found to be effective.
