In this series of tests, involving 574 animals, it was shown that, by either route, sulfaquinoxaline had a dose-dependent depressive effect on weight gain of the rats, chickens and chicks, and quail, and also on egg yield of the hens and quail hens. Metronidazole, on the other hand, had a stimulant effect on the same parameters, though this required a higher dose for quail than for chickens.
