Opinions, please? Getting ready to de-worm and treat for mites

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I soon plan on de-worming my chickens with Valbazen, however, I was also planning to treat for mites using Eprinex pour on (.2 ml topically applied to bare skin at the base of the neck).  

 

Since there is no egg withdrawal using the Eprinex, should I wait until I've finished de-worming with Valbazen?  Or, okay to do both at the same time?  Don't want to possibly overdose them on wormer. 

 

Thanks!

Not completely familiar with Valbazen and Eprinex pour on combo, but my line of thinking it might have the same effect as what @dawg53 discusses in the link above.

If that is the case, then worming seems appropriate first then using mite/lice treatment would come next (after two weeks?).

Just my opinion:)
