Flubenol™ 5% contains flubendazole, a broad-spectrum anthelmintic with high efficacy against all gastrointestinal worm species that commonly occur in poultry. It is effective against roundworms (Ascaridia galli, Heterakis gallinarum, Capillaria spp., Amidostomum anseris and Trichostrongylus tenuis), gapeworm (Syngamus trachea) and tapeworms (Raillietina sp.). Its safety profile allows a safe and secure use in most poultry species, including the breeding stock. Flubenol is a tasteless powder which is added to dry feed.
Dosage for Poultry.
Dosage rate: To treat your flock mix the powder thoroughly into the feed and feed it out for seven consecutive days. It needs to be thoroughly mixed through the pellets or crumble do not just sprinkle on top.
- To treat a large flock (22-25 hens) mix 15g (3 teaspoons) into 21.5kg feed for chickens and geese or for a smaller flock (7-8 hens) 5g (one teaspoon) per 7kg feed. (please check recommended daily ration on your feed bag to work out exact amount).
- To treat pheasants and partridge mix 15g (3 teaspoons) in with 11kg feed.
- To treat turkeys mix 15g (3 teaspoons) in with 32kg feed.
To work out the dosage 1 x standard sized laying hen eat 130g of layer pellets per day.
Mix the required amount of feed to be consumed over the week for your birds and on the 8th day remove what is left replacing it with fresh unmedicated feed.
In case of infestation with tapeworm, double the dose for seven consecutive days.
The good news is there is no withholding period for eggs and meat for poultry.
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 seven days had no negative effects on egg production, egg quality, hatching results and growth of offspring.
Treatment with Flubenol can only be effective if the hygiene of pig pens and poultry housing is observed.
Available in a 600g tub and in smaller sachets for treating smaller flocks.
Treatment for Pigs.
Flubenol is effective against the mature and immature larvae and eggs of the following species of worm: Large Roundworm, Red Stomach Worm, Nodular Worm Lungworm, Threadworm and Whipworm.
Individual treatment: (Single administration).
Add 1 g of Flubenol for each 10 kg bodyweight onto the finished feed. (This is equivalent to 5 mg of flubendazole per one kg bodyweight). One 13 g measuring spoon treats one 130 kg sow.
An easy way of administering the dose is to add it to a buttered bread roll and feed it to your pig.
Treat twice a year unless recommended otherwise by your veterinary surgeon. Pigs brought onto the premises should be treated on arrival and before mixing with other animals. Animals must not be slaughtered for human consumption within 7 days of treatment.
