Flubenol 5% is an oral worm treatment, active against gastrointestinal worms in poultry. It kills every worm known to poultry including gapeworm, large roundworm, small roundworm, hairworm in crop and small intestine and tapeworm.
This product is a breakthrough worming product in Australia, as it has NO withholding period for meat and eggs, plus fertility and hatchability is not affected. Only a tiny amount is needed, which is mixed into their feed and fed out for seven days. Treatment with Flubenol can only give optimum results when hygiene is strictly followed in pens and houses.
Flubenol is supplied in a container which is more than an average flock keeper can use and is very expensive, and vets do not usually stock it, therefore it can be difficult to source. Due to MPI regulations, we are not permitted to advertise small amounts for general sale, so we only dispense Flubenol by request.
Flubenol should be mixed thoroughly into dry feed and fed out for 7 consecutive days. Estimate how much feed is normally consumed in 7 days (normally approx. 120g per standard chook) and mix in 1 teaspoon per 5kg of feed. If the medicated feed is consumed before the week is up, make up another batch and continue until finished.
Feed out in an appropriate feeder. Do not throw feed on the ground.
In case of infestation with tapeworm, double the dose. For first time dosing, use the double dose rate to ensure all worms present are killed and repeat the single dose two weeks after the first treatment is completed. Thereafter, treat every three months or sooner if worms are detected, though worm infestations are not always obvious.
Meat and eggs at the therapeutic dose, no withdrawal time has to be observed. Neither laying, fertility nor hatching is affected.
Symptoms following overdosing
Flubenol 5% is non-toxic; even considerable overdosing does not produce side effects. In poultry, even three times the highest dose for 7 days had no negative effects on egg production, egg quality, hatching results, growth of offspring or in any other respect.
