    No, they didn't but I would guess 1 drop for LF 11 week old chicks. Do you repeat as suggested or just use once? I haven't seen them pass any worms, but hope it is working.

    Can anyone confirm what the active ingredient is? I called Twin Cities and the gal that answered didn't know. She said that they get it from England and re-package it. -Kathy

    Thanks... I've read posts where people say that, and I've read other posts where people say it's flubendazole. If it is pyrantel pamoate, they're robbing people blind *and* lying about it being effective on *all* worms, lol. Will call them on Tuesday and try to figure it out. [​IMG]

    This is a 473ml bottle of pyrantel that one can buy for less than $20.

    There's some post about what it is on page 1 of this thread. There was another wormer mentioned- Combantrin.

    Combatrin 125mg Pyrantal Pamoate in chewable tablet for people - One human tablet is the equivalent of 2.5ml of the liquid we can get here for $19 a pint.

    Combatrin-1 is a 100mg Mebendazole chewable tablet for people. - Mebendazole is not a wormer I have seen in the States.

    -Kathy

    PS - not trying to be a pain, just want to know what exactly it is.[​IMG]
