    Good day

    I have read that Valbazen is a good dewormer for poultry, I have looked for Valbazen and could only find Virbac prodose blue.
    It contains Albendazole, can this be used for turkeys and what would the dosage be?

    Why not do it organically with herbs and garlic?

    @marius86 , welcome to BYC!You can use that, but I think the dose for turkeys is something like 0.267 ml per kg, so a 10 kg turkey would get 2.67 ml.

    Thanks for the reply, I will definitely pick up a bottle then. I have also a bottle of Panacur (5% Fenbendazole) for some reason our one is only 5%. Will the dosage be 1ml per kg to achieve a 50mg/kg ratio and then repeat the dose in 10 days? And is it a good idea to maybe rotate the panacur and virbac wormers?
