    That is very good news, and I thank you Ma'am (edited).

    The UK/US difference in approval for layers points out, once again, that the USA and UK are two countries divided by more than a common language, as Patton said.

    No need to buy that, one can use the goat stuff.

    I know but I want him to show the CEO that it is approved for chickens.

    Oh, forgot to mention that Wazine is approved for laying hens in Canada.

    Well, well, well. The CEO is earning her golden parachute and stock options today. A little research and she determined that Flubenvet contains almost exactly the same active ingredient as Safeguard. So we went to the local feed store and got some Safeguard. And....it says it's made in Europe on the bottle.

    Now I need some little martini glasses with umbrellas in them, to entice the hens to drink that concoction...

    Yes. That is called the 'indirect' lifecycle.

    Yes, they are the same, but goat stuff is half as concentrated (10% vs 20%).
    The egg laying dose is 1 mg/kg for five consecutive days, and that works out to about 0.0045 ml per pound of body weight for five days, which is about 0.0227 ml per five pound chicken (about one drop).

    Edited for typos.

    Oops, I misread. :oops: they are not the same. Don't know what I was thinking. :oops:
    One is fenbendazole, the other is flubendazole. Your CEO IS correct though, they are very similar.
