    The Wazine is liquid. I want to add it to my gallon waterer. How should I measure it?

    Thanks in advance!

    Thank you!

    24 hours only - Does that mean only treat for 24 hours. Or remix in 24 hours?

    I've never used it, but I think it means use it once for a total of 24 hours. Double check with Dawg.

    This is what the instructions say:

    Source: http://valleyvet.naccvp.com/index.php?m=product_view_basic&u=country&p=msds&id=1012002
    For best results, remove water in the evening (except during hot weather). Then, early the next morning, begin water medicated with Wazine-17. Provide medicated water only, distributed in waterers sufficient in number so that all birds or animals have access to water. The medicated water should be consumed in 1 day or less. Worming every 30 days is necessary to break the large roundworm life cycle.

    TURKEYS - Under 12 weeks of age: for each 100 birds, use 2 fluid ounces (60 ml) of Wazine-17 in 2 U.S. gallons (7.6 liters) of drinking water.
    Over 12 weeks of age: for each 100 birds, use 4 fluid ounces (120 ml) of Wazine-17 in 4 U.S. gallons (15 liters) of drinking water.
    Worm turkeys at 4-6 weeks of age and thereafter at 30 days, or as needed.
    CHICKENS - 4 to 6 weeks of age: for each 100 birds, use 1 fluid ounce (30 ml) of Wazine-17 in 1 U.S. gallon (3.8 liters) of drinking water.
    Over 6 weeks of age: for each 100 birds, use 2 fluid ounces (60 ml) of Wazine-17 in 2 U.S. gallons (7.6 liters) of drinking water.
    Treat broilers at 4 weeks of age and thereafter at 30 days, or as needed. Treat replacement pullets at 8, 12, and 16 weeks of age.

    1 liquid ounce = 30ml = 2 tablespoons

    I use it with a 24-h exposure where it is made fresh and used only for that day. Solution not consumed is then discarded. I get control using the stuff for one day. I take additional measures to make sure birds do not consume early life-stage worms at that time as well. The discarded solution is disposed in a manner so that it does not come into contact with non-target worms at reduced concentrations.

    Would this work as well as Valbazen? Would be easy just to put it in the water, if not I'll stick with Getting the paste in them.

    If worms in area have not been frequently exposed to Wazine and the worms have not been imported from an area with excessive use, then control will most likely be realized.
