ABOUT FLUBENOL WORMER:
Flubenol 5% is an oral poultry wormer that effectively kills every known gastrointestinal worm that infect poultry including gapeworm, large roundworm, small roundworm, hairworm in crop and small intestine and tapeworm.
Only a tiny amount of Flubenol is recommended, it is nontoxic to both humans and poultry.
Flubenol has no withholding period for meat and eggs.
DOSAGE RATE FOR CHICKENS:
This is a seven-day treatment.
Thoroughly mix 1 level metric teaspoon (supplied) into 5kg of feed and feed over 7 consecutive days, 5kg of feed normally feeds 6 chickens at 120g each feed per day.
If treated feed is consumed before seven days then top up to get them through to the seven days.
There is a low risk of overdosing.
Feed out in an appropriate feeder. (Do not throw feed on the ground).
Treatment is optimised when chicken pens and houses are kept hygienic.

Chickens and geese:
30 g flubendazole per ton of feed (30 ppm) for 7 consecutive days.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Flubenol 5% should be mixed into the feed and the mixture administered.
For a group treatment make sure that all animals take enough Flubenol 5%. The medicine should therefore be well mixed into the feed so that a homogenous mixture is obtained. It should not be strewn over pellets or crums since this gives a nonhomogeneous mixture.
- 20g flubendazole per ton (20 ppm) corresponds to 400g of Flubenol 5% peer ton of feed.
- 30g flubendazole per ton (30 ppm) corresponds to 600g 0f Flubenol 5% per ton of feed.
- 60g flubendazole per ton (60 ppm) corresponds to 1.2 kg of Flubenol 5% peer ton of feed.
Treatment with Flubenol 5% gives optimal results only when strict hygiene of the poultry houses is practiced.
In poultry even 3 times the highest dose (180 ppm flubendazole) for 7 days had no negative effects on egg production, egg quality, hatching results growth of offspring or in any other respect.
