You know what, you're absolutely right. I apologize, my previous information was incorrect. I'd have sworn that it was Fenbendazole prescribed but I called my vet today and it was actually Praziquantel. My sincerest apologies. Dosage for Praziquantel is a pea sized amount per bird to treat tapeworms.

No need to apologize! :D

 

Regarding the "pea sized amount"... I know there are many posts that say that, but that amount of Equimax is too much for a 5 pound bird. Equimax dose for a 5 pound bird is 5 / 2.2 x 10 / 140.3 = 0.16 ml. A pea sized blob is almost twice that.

 

Blob by rice = 0.025 ml

Small blob by pea = 0.1 ml

Medium blob by pea = 0.25 ml

Large blob by pea = 0.5 ml

Praziquantel dose = 10 mg/kg

In case any of you are wondering how I know how many mg are in a ml, it's because I've weighed the paste, and 1 ml weighs 1 gram. From there it's just a little math. :D

Very interesting. I got my pea sized-amount figure straight from the vet. I'll print out these posts and bring them in to her next time I'm there, I'm sure she'll be interested to see this research. Thanks Kathy, impeccable information as always.
