Is there ivermectin for chickens? I know you can use the one for horses on dogs.
In truth, there really are no wormers approved for chickens other than possibly Wazine (piperazine), but it gets only one type of worm, the roundworm. For that reason, I've never used Wazine. Seems a waste of time to me.
Almost every medication we use on chickens is off-label.
This is why I have been considering using Ivermectin only. Over and Over I read to use Wazine, then follow up with Ivermectin. What's the point of that?
The point is that if there is a super large worm load, killing them all at once can literally clog their intestines and kill them, in the most extreme cases. Wazine would get the roundworms first. That's the rationale, anyway. My protest to that is what if they have a huge load of roundworms and they all clog the system?
The reason I say Valbazen is the best is that it starves out worms over a several-day period so there is no chance of clogging the system and it kills every worm a chicken can get.
There are several types of invermectin. I've only used the paste in the tube orally and the pour-on that is oil based. I've used Ivomec Eprinex Pour On as well, but only some that a BYC member gave me she had left in her bottle due to the cost of it.
I used to get pumpkin seeds in the bulk seeds in the produce area of the grocery store, but they're so pricey now, about $7/lb. Make sure they are unsalted if you use them. Or feed them a pumpkin, seeds and all. Mine won't eat raw pumpkin, though.
