    I was just wondering about some other wormers that I've found that I haven't seen mentioned here like these that I've found on a Gamefowl site called
    http://www.oakridgegamefarm.net & the last two listed are on Randall Burkey.

    Enzum wormer:


    "For all species of worms common to Gamefowl. Tape, Gut, Intestinal, Round, Gape, ETC. A new Broad-spectrum wormer that is exceptionally effective in the removal and control of all species of worms commonly found in gamefowl. Enzum is safe, effective and easy to use. This wormer kills more species of worms at different development stages than any other wormer."


    Breco Neobicide Wormer

    "Neobicide wormer may be used externally by placing (7 to 8 drops Depending on size fowl) down the back of each fowl starting at the head and ending at the tail being careful to reach the skin beneath the feathers every 60 to 90 days choose between a 1oz or 2oz dropper."


    Trifen Plus
    "This is a 100 ct bottle. Wormer, newer formula. Each pill contains: Ivomec 0.2mg Febendazole 30mg. Directions:1 pill per every 2.2 pounds (can be used 2-2.5 pounds)."


    Wormazole

    "Wormazole capsules are for the removal of round, cecal and tape worms in adult chickens weighing 5 lbs or more."

    William's Wormer (100 Ct)

    "Broad spectrum wormer, for all types of worms that infest chickens.."

    Does anyone have any knowledge or opinions of any of these?

    I haven't seen mentioned here

    Those are brand names

    The "neobicide" is really Ivomec

    The Trifen Plus is Ivomec and Safeguard (It actuallysays so in your post)

    Wormazole is Safeguard


    Learn to read the ACTIVE INGREDIENT instead of the name on the label

    There really aren't that many wormers that work for birds, but there are LOTS of different brand names for them​

    That's the thing...at that website I don't see the ACTIVE INGREDIENT, except for the Trifen Plus. [​IMG]

    What is the Enzum?

    Google the names and you'll be able to find them


    What is the Enzum?

    Probably Safeguard:

    Broad spectrum wormer similar to Wormazole,

    There are a few GOOD wormers for poultry, and they are proven to work well.

    It's easier to stick with them than to look for something "better"​

    Enzum is Albendazole, the same ingredient in Valbazen.

    I repeated what the OP stated:

    It may be a different formula now since this was posted over 2 years ago

    In this link, type "wormazole" in the green "find a drug" searrch box:
    http://www.epharmapedia.com/medicine/profile/173848/WORMAZOLE.html?lang=en
    Apparently "wormazole" has many "names" throughout the world when it's broken down. I've seen it online as fenbendazole, mebendazole, and albendazole....all in a name.
    Personally, I dont use it and I could really care less what the rest of the world calls it or even if they use it. I'll stick with what I KNOW works: Valbazen (albendazole) and Safeguard (fenbendazole) and an infrequent use of Zimectrin Gold (ivermectin and praziquantel.)

    The post may be 2 years old, but corrections were needed in order to lessen confusion since it still remains. Foreign websites mean nothing when it applies to Wormazole since the name is used for a different product. My source comes from the mouth of the manufacturer in the U.S. (Wood Enterprises) The fact is, Wormazole in the U.S. is mebendazole.

    Trifen Plus ( a foreign product) may have had a different recipe in the past. What matters now is accuracy to avoid confusing anyone searching for preferred wormers. I wouldn't use it due to abamectin being an ingredient. Again, abamectin and ivermectin are two different chemicals.

    Before the internet, I remember going to a library, or contacting vets to find out which wormers were safe and effective for particular worms. I agree with dawg53, that the wormers he mentioned are 3 of the best and safest wormers at this time to use, so long as proper dosages are used.
