It's a broad spectrum chemical de-wormer.
Thank you everyone. :) I'm forever grateful.
P.S. Anyone have a bottle of Valbazen they don't want? Or tips on the best place to buy?
Maybe I'll just have to buy that ridiculously huge bottle online again because my local feed store isn't even familiar with this product.
In the meantime I'm putting some crushed garlic in their water tomorrow. Anyone have good luck with that? Susan Burek recommends it. ..
You're welcome! DE has been proven to work for internal parasites in Vancouver, but has been unsuccessful in the US, so it is still questionable. However, at its worst, it does nothing for internal parasites, but is great to put into their dust bathing box, as it treats external pests like mites. Just make sure your DE is food grade!
pumpkin seeds are good. when chemicals didn't kill all the worms I chopped some pumpkin seeds and the next day found some dead worms in chicken's poop. garlic, cayenne pepper and black pepper are good, too. I mix them all with their feed.
