    A NOTE HERE ON WAZINE 17 is this IT IS ONLY GOD FOR ROUND WORMS

    Well I went on BYC again and this information came up

    Chicken Jim 50 ai on 12-16-12
    I called the makers of Wazine17 they said the FDA said wait 17 days after first dose of de-wormer Wazine17 before eating eggs. They also said the FDA is being very Conservative. Also this product's main ingredient is what they use to give to humans and at a higher dose than you give to chickens. You can see it here...http://google2.fda.gov/search?q=Wazine+17&client=FDAgov&site=FDAgov&lr=&proxystylesheet=FDAgov&output=xml_no_dtd&getfie

    AND
    Go here and read...
    http://www.fda.gov/downloads/AnimalVeterinary/Products/ApprovedAnimalDrugProducts/FOIADrugSummarie
    s/ucm049524.pdf


    It seems strange to us why they are requiring the 17 days when they use to give this to humans at way higher dose's. the amount we are giving the chickens per Wazine17 bottle is very low in comparison. The man at the lab where wazine is made said the wazine is a very safe product. He didn't say but implied the 17 days is way to long. Think about it folks, if we are to treat the chickens every 14 days and have to wait 17 days before eating the eggs, then we would never get to eat the eggs. I am not buying the wait period 17 days. We are waiting 5 days and we don't treat for worms every 14 days.

    DAWG53 said
    On the bottle of wazine it states that there's a 14 day slaughter withdrawal period. If the chicken is good to eat after 14 days, so are the eggs. Keep in mind that wazine only gets rid of large roundworms. Chickens can carry several types of worms and it's best to use an off label broad spectrum wormer to kill them. Valbazen cattle/sheep wormer is your best wormer, kills all types of worms that chickens can get. Safeguard liquid goat wormer is a very good wormer for chickens as well. With either product, there's a 14 day withdrawal period after last dosing.
    You could worm first with either product, then reworm your birds 10 days later...a total of 24 days withdrawal start to finish tossing eggs or feeding them to your dog(s.) Got to check with a vet though and see if your breed of dog would be sensitive to albendazole (valbazen) or fenbendazole (safeguard) residue in the eggs.

    CHICKEN JIM50 SAID
    Thank you for the reply, the 14 day is for slaughter is correct, but we don't eat these chickens we have. The bottle states "Not to use wazine17 on chickens that produce eggs" That prompted me to call the makers of Wazine17, they said the FDA says wait 17 days after treating chickens with wazine17 before eating eggs. The 14 days your implying is a "assumption" 17 days is what FDA says. However after reading about the active drug Piperazine on the FDA site as posted in my first post, we believe the 17 day or even if it was 14 day wait period is way to long to wait. If one reads the site I posted they will see why we say that, coupled with what the man at Fleming Laboratories, INC told me, and that is the FDA is being very, very conservative as to the 17 days wait period. That being said, we decided to go ahead and eat the eggs after about 5 days and we feel safe doing that.

    CHIKENS ARE SWEET SAID
    I wouldn't eat the eggs so soon (at 5 days). To quote a good friend, "These wormers are poisons."

    CHICKEN JIM50 said
    We aren't telling anyone else to do what we are doing, we just feel when you look at the amount that's given to humans then compare that to what one gives to chickens and then the wait period of 5 days, we don't see where we would be getting very much if any of the wazine17 in the eggs. We feel the wormer has ran it's course within the 5 days. We might be wrong, and we are looking for any signs that might lead us to believe there is a problem. Again if one reads the doses that's given to humans and compare it with what's given to the chickens, there is really no need to worry we are getting to much in the eggs.That is our opinion.

    KNOW THE ENEMY

    The first line of defense against parasites is to understand the enemies
    that threaten your pet’s health. The 4 major parasites seen in dogs in North America include: roundworms, hookworms, tapeworms and whipworms. While symptoms vary depending upon the specific parasite, health problems can range from diarrhea, vomiting, anemia, and dehydration to itching, stunted growth, rough coats, weight loss, and even death in extreme cases.
    [​IMG]
    ROUNDWORMS

    Roundworms are the most common intestinal parasites found in dogs – and especially in young puppies, that are often infected at birth, or soon thereafter.

    [​IMG]
    HOOKWORMS

    Also common in North America, multiple infestation sources, consumes dog’s blood causing anemia and other symptoms.

    TAENIA TAPEWORMS

    More common in outdoor dogs since source is infected rabbits or rodents, hard to diagnose.

    WHIPWORMS

    Growing concern in recent years, can cause mucoid diarrhea.

    DID YOU KNOW?
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Fiea and tick treatments help prevent infections from the parasites they carry. But Taenia pisiformis Tapeworm is carried by rabbits and rodents, the prey of many outdoor dogs.
    ASSESS THE RISK

    THE MORE HE’S OUTSIDE, THE GREATER HIS RISK OF INFECTION
    Sources of parasite infections are more likely to be found outdoors. While they vary depending upon the specific parasite, the most common sources include: soil, feces, rabbits and rodents; hookworms can even enter through the pads of the feet. Indoor dogs are at a lower risk for parasite infections.

    Problem
    Worms: Assessing the Problem

    A Hidden Problem

    Like an iceberg, the worm problem is largely hidden. It's what you can't see that's going to cause the most serious damage and the greatest potential losses. According to a [recent study from Iowa State] sub-clinical disease caused by parasite infection that goes undetected can cost $190 per animal.
    [​IMG]

    Suppress Appetite, Reduce Daily Gain

    Reduced feed intake is the largest single effect of parasites on production. Heavy internal parasite infestations can limit intake of feeds and forages by cattle. The limiting or depression of intake subsequently depresses the intake of nutrients including protein, energy, minerals and vitamins. All are critical to cattle health and well being. In the cow, energy intake is critical to the maintenance of body condition. During periods of internal parasite infestation when intake is depressed, energy intake is also depressed.
    [​IMG]

    Parasites Directly Affect Immune Response

    The damage done by internal parasites to the gastrointestinal tract can greatly depress absorption of a variety of nutrients. Another critical aspect of cattle performance affected by parasitized cattle is health. Research shows parasitized cattle can't effectively respond to vaccination programs (connect to the following whitepaper Gasbarre, Louis C., The Interaction of the Bovine Immune System and GI Nematodes presentation, Intervet Cattle Veterinary Meeting, Denver, Colo., June 2006.) It takes a minimum of two to three weeks from removal of parasites for cattle immune systems to return to normal function and effectively respond to a modified live vaccine. As an animal attempts to develop immunity against the internal parasites the animals ability to respond to vaccines is impaired or reduced. This results in greater susceptibility to infection and a reduced ability of the animal's immune system to fight off pathogens. The picture below shows changes in the size of draining lymph nodes after infection with Ostertagia.

    I was given this infomation for worming chickens so thought I would look up the infomation
    As I have posted here.
    I am interested in the information given on Cattle;
    We all know that body building flesh weight gain is what cattle are for.
    here is what it said:
    IE: WORMS
    Suppress Appetite, Reduce Daily Gain

    Reduced feed intake is the largest single effect of parasites on production. Heavy internal parasite infestations can limit intake of feeds and forages by cattle. The limiting or depression of intake subsequently depresses the intake of nutrients including protein, energy, minerals and vitamins. All are critical to cattle health and well being. In the cow, energy intake is critical to the maintenance of body condition. During periods of internal parasite infestation when intake is depressed, energy intake is also depressed.

    So if your chickens either hens or eating broilers etc are wormy they will not eat good and produce good eggs.
    So worm the chickens at least once ayear.
    As free range chickens will eat spoiled decaded matter and thus pick up worm larva. So keep the chickens healthy
