    Hello,
    Anyone out there have the container handy to tell me what the contents are of this Worm Guard Plus Broad Spectrum wormer? Also the dosage.
    I have been using DE for a couple of years and yesterday I found a long white worm in my chicken's poo--so gross! I don't know if it is because of the flies are so terrible this year or what!
    I have NEVER had any problems like this before! I try to do things as naturally as possible. This wormer sounds like something I might try. Yesterday I took away the food and water and made them stay in their pen with a plate of Apple Cider Vinegar, Red Pepper, DE and garlic. That way they had to drink and eat that. They didn't have a choice. Thanks for taking the time if anyone can to let me know.

    DE nor Worm Guard nor none of the others mentioned in your post are going to deal with an active worm infestation (they are helpful in management and prevention measures though)... get the appropriate med to treat is my advice.

    ivomec Eprinex is a broad spectrum wormer that will treat nearly all worms ... (o9therwise you will need to identify the worm sort as the other wormers are specific to usually only one type of worm)... here is an article on that incl dosages 9I suggest you use the spoton method instead of adding it to their water):
