I had my 1 yr old peacock die, was using the "wazine" and ivermectin ( injected 0.5ml in between shoulders every 3 mo.) thinking I was doing great worming everything. So my male died and I started researching the cause. I gave all peahens and turkeys 0.5ml safeguard in throat just like suppose to. I am a nurse so I used the end connector from a O 2 tubing and a Insulin syringe to get pass the trachea. QUESTION??? If I used safeguard orally, do I need to use it orally again ? or can I put it in the drinking water in the 10 days to follow? I put it in the water so all animals would get safeguard for 3 days.... So if I use it by mouth do I re-give by mouth in 10 days /or give in water x3 days then re-give in 10 days? Will it work by mixing dose? I have been thinking I did it wrong. Please advise, any thoughts appreciated.
