Vet RX & scaly leg mites?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Recently I have read a couple of things indicating that VetRX , a few drops in the drinking water, works as a preventative or cure for mild cases of SLM. Just curious if anyone has had any experience with this. I don't think a whole lot of that stuff otherwise, but some people like it. Anyone?

Is there a no-egg-eat period with that? Probably.

I had one showing signs of SLM this winter and they were cooped up a lot due to epic cold (-16℉ and even worse wind chill) so I worried it would spread like wild fire.

I smothered the legs in Vaseline and kept an eye on it. Symptoms disappeared in a week or so. I've read that the Vaseline smothers the mites. Non toxic, no egg tossing and you can target only the affected hens.

OH, yeah, that's the normal way to treat SLM.  Or, you can dip them in Permethrin.  But I just read that bout the VetRX , and i wondered if any one had tried it.  I doubt there would be a withdrawal period, it's just a natural remedy, as far as I know.  I guess no one has.

Interesting, this is the first I've heard of it. Maybe someone else will chime in.
