New wormer with no egg withdrawal

Post by Colleen Kinzie » Tue Oct 03, 2017 7:21 am

Just received an email from Merck Animal Health
That they now have a wormer for chickens that has no egg withdrawal!!! Woohoo
It is Panacur Aquasol
I'll be switching to it for sure
Hate throwing out eggs

Great news! Do you know where to buy it? I wonder why it has no egg withdrawal when the active ingredient is fenbendazole- same as other wormers like safe guard horse paste.

I'm not sure if I can get it at feed store or vet
I'm trying to copy the email I received but I'm not to computer savvy. Lol

I'm new to this, but figured if one was going to work their chickens, it might be a good idea to give them wormer when they are molting and not laying. Is that correct?

Hopefully, they will be selling it here in Canada, seems many of these drugs never make it here due to our drug regs and the small market. Here's hoping!

Molt is a pretty stressful time in the life of chickens, probably not the best time to be adding a stress of medicating at the same time.
I think Wylady has mentioned it before, but unless you have actual evidence of worms in your poultry, medicating without cause is just stressing the birds needlessly.

Thanks OC. I didn't think about the added stress :( I'm not planning to worm my girls just for the heck of it, but I was just curious.

Merck's website says "For more information, consult your veterinarian."

I would assume it is available only through your veterinarian
