A convenient and broad spectrum bird wormer which controls thread, caecal, round, gape, gizzard and important tape worms in caged birds. Avitrol Plus syrup can be added to the drinking water, or dosed directly to the bird's beak. Avitrol tablets provide a secure method of dosing individual birds. Available in 100 tablets

Ingredients: Levamisole Hydrochloride and Praziquantel

Do not feed birds 24 hours before or 3 hours after treatment. Treat all birds in the same loft or cage. Thoroughly clean and disinfect the loft or cage 3 days after treatment. To prevent re-infestation, practice good hygiene and sanitation, and eliminate dampness. Ideally the birds should be moved into a clean cage 48 hours after initial treatment, and the old cage thoroughly scrubbed and disinfected. To prevent infection from the outside, prevent birds access to intermediate hosts, e.g. grasshoppers, cockroaches and earthworms. Wild birds can infect the aviary with their droppings.

Refrigerated ProductNo
IndicationThreadworm (Capillaria sp.), caecal worm (Heterakis sp.), roundworm (Ascaridia sp.), gape worm (Syngamus sp.), gizzard worm (Acuaria sp.) and tapeworm (Raillietina sp.) in ornamental cage birds.
ContraindicationsAdministration to species or strains of birds known to be sensitive to the effects of levamisole. Not recommended for use in Gouldian finches.
ActionsAnthelmintic. The major mode of action of levamisole is on the cholinergic receptor of the neuromuscular junction, causing paralysis of the parasite. Levamisole has been shown to inhibit fumarate reductase and to affect the rate of incorporation of glucose into glycogen.Praziquantel is a highly specific cestocidal drug that acts by damaging the tegument, inhibiting glucose uptake and stimulating lactate release. Tapeworms are destroyed in situ.
PrecautionsParrots appear to be less tolerant than pigeons to levamisole. Do not dose in extremely hot, dry weather or treat stressed birds, or birds that are feeding young.Harmful if swallowed. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Wash hands after use.First Aid If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre. Phone Australia 131 126.Disposal Dispose of empty container by wrapping in paper and putting in garbage.
Dosage and Administration Diluted in drinking water. 0.5 mL (12 drops) to 20 mL of water or 25 mL/L. Use this as the sole source of drinking water for 24 hours and feed only seed, then replace with fresh clean water. Solution should be freshly made up before dosing. Repeat in 14 days with fresh solution, or as directed by a veterinary surgeon. This provides a dose of 40 mg/kg bodyweight based on an average bodyweight of 30 g and liquid consumption of 5 mL/day. In summer the dose should be reduced to account for increased water consumption, which may be double or more.For threadworm, caecal worm, gape worm and roundworm a dose of 0.025 mg/g (25 mg/kg) bodyweight has been found adequate. For gizzard worm a dose of 0.05 mg/g (50 mg/kg) is necessary. Good husbandry practices. Zone control is important in the management of these worm parasites. To prevent re-infestation, practise good hygiene and sanitation and eliminate dampness. Ideally the birds should be moved into a clean cage 48 hours after initial treatment and the old cage thoroughly scrubbed and disinfected. To prevent infection from the outside, prevent birds having access to intermediate hosts, e.g. grasshoppers, cockroaches and earthworms. Wild birds can infect the aviary with their droppings.
