"The Best There Is!"
Pros - Worms almost anything! Really Works!
Cons - Have to calculate your dosage for different weights
This is the best wormer there is! It takes care of all worms out there! Normally, you have to get several wormers to take care of all the different types of worms. We do rescue for dogs and have quite a few at a time. We have 9 right now! But, when we were taking the dogs to the vet...it was costing us an arm and a leg, so the vet told us to go to the feed supply store and buy a bottle of this. He helped us calculate the dosages for our dogs and we've been using it ever since. It has saved a ton of money being able to worm all the dogs ourselves!
Pros - Broad Spectrum, Very effective
Cons - Off label for chickens, costValbazen is a broad-spectrum anthelmintic (11.36% Albendazole) is effective in the removal of liver flukes, tapeworms, stomach worms, round worms, & other intestinal and lungworms.
Off label for chickens. Consensus seems to be a 10 day egg withdrawal.
- .077 cc straight valbazen per pound of bird weight (that is 3/4 of 1/10 of 1 cc straight per pound)
- .17 cc straight valbazen per kilogram of bird weight
- pound example.....8 lb bird x .077 equals 0.6 cc of straight Valbazen or just over 1/2 cc. A 10 lb bird would be almost exactly 3/4 of a cc (.077 x 10 = .77 cc)
- Kilogram example.... 3 kg. bird x .17 equals 0.51 cc (1/2 cc) of straight valbazen.
You can most assuredly give valbazen straight without dillution (a small syringe like 3 cc may help) but it has been discussed in the past about "gut coverage or saturation" with such a small amount of liquid. Valbazen works more thru the gut, versus the blood stream like Ivermec does for example. I have followed the greater saturation belief. I therefore get my dosage of pure valbazen and then draw up enough water to equal at least 1 cc. I Repeat with Ivermectin pour-on in 15 days. IMPO do not use more than 2 times per year. I have found Valbazen to be perhaps the most effective broad spectrum wormer on the market today. Some say it has a single dose 100% kill rate, although I advocate repeating with Ivermectin pour on in 15 days.
