Description

These treatments include spot-on, multi-parasite treatments as well as a water soluble treatment for roundworms and hair worms which can be added to drinking water. They are all suitable for use in parrots, parakeets, small aviary birds etc.

The water soluble product contains levamisole and is ideal for dissolving in drinking water to treat aviary birds, or birds which it is too difficult or stressful to catch. Dilute the product as directed on the label and provide the medicated drinking water for 24 hours. This should be repeated at least twice a year for birds prone to round worms (such as Australian parakeets).

The spot-on treatments contain ivermectin which is absorbed through the skin and is able to treat internal and external parasites over the entire body surface. Effective against parasites such as mites, lice, ticks, fleas and worms living in the gut. The spot-on only needs to be applied in one place, such as on the skin of the back of the neck. Simply part the feathers and empty the pipette onto the skin. The active ingredient is absorbed into the bird and kills parasites wherever they are.

Bird size guidelines

Please be aware the following is just a guide to which spot-on should be used on which bird. Weighing your bird will give you the best idea.

  • Medium Bird (50 - 300g) - Mini Macaws, other African Parrots, Conures, Cockatiels, Parakeets, Rainbow Lorys.

Beaphar Anti-Parasite Spot On Small (Canary/Budgie)

Overview

Active Ingredient: Ivermectin 10ug per pipette. Beaphar Anti-Parasite Spot on for small birds is a veterinary medicine containing Ivermectin (10ug per pipette), which is effective against roundworms, feather lice, red (blood) mites, feather mites, air sac mites and mange mites (scaly face) for up to 4 weeks after treatment. This pack contains 2 pipettes, and is suitable for use on birds weighing 20-50g.

How To Use

Twist off the cap and apply entire contents of pipette to the base of the feathers, on the bird’s neck. Birds' feathers are adapted to shed rain and this same principle will cause the bird spot-on to run-off if applied superficially. It is important that the solution be applied onto the skin or soft down feathers, otherwise it will not work. While squeezing out the contents, spread the solution over as great a surface of the skin as possible. A small bird will be quite damp after application, so keep your bird warm until dry. A second treatment should not be required, but if it is, leave 4 weeks before re-applying.

Storage: Do not store above 25 °C. Keep in original container, out of sunlight. Dispose of empty pipettes in household rubbish. Warnings: Keep out of reach of children. For animal treatment only.

Beaphar Bird Wormer

Overview

Active Ingredient: Levamisole hydrochloride 1% w/v. Beaphar Bird Wormer is a veterinary medicine containing Levamisole hydrochloride (1% w/v), and is effective against roundworms (Ascaridia) and hairworms (Capillaria) in all types of cage and aviary birds. Its use is particularly recommended for parakeets, cockatiels and lovebirds. Worms may be tolerated by older birds who may show few apparent symptoms, but can be fatal for younger individuals. If you intend breeding we highly recommend worming all birds, and pressure washing or disinfecting the aviary floor to clear the microscopic worm eggs that will be in the environment & will otherwise re-infect your stock. The bottle contains sufficient wormer to treat 100 canaries, or 2-3 parrots.

How To Use

Beaphar wormer can be given to birds either directly into the beak, using the pipette provided, or by dissolving the correct amount in their drinking water. Dosing birds directly into the beak: NB minimum dose is one drop; birds must weigh at least 12.5g each. Administer one drop for every 12.5g bodyweight. For example: Type of Bird Weight of Bird No. of drops to give Canary 25g 2 Budgie 40-50g 4 Parakeet 40-100g 4-8 Parrot 100-1000g 8-80 Dosing birds via the drinking water: Dissolve 4ml (80 drops) wormer in 100ml water. Fill drinking bowl / bottle with this solution, and remove any bathing water for the duration of treatment. Canaries, finches, etc: Provide no other water or moist food for 24 hours, and allow the bird(s) to drink as they wish. Repeat one week later, if necessary. Budgies, parakeets and parrots: Provide no other water or moist food for 48 hours, and allow the bird(s) to drink as they wish. Repeat once every 4 weeks in the presence of heavy infections.

Health + Safety

Warnings: For animal treatment only. Use only on cage and aviary birds weighing more than 12.5g. Do not use on other species of animal. Do not use on sick or convalescing birds.

Spot on

Ian Barnard

Can spot on be used on moulting birds. Thank you

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Ian,

Thank you for your email.

Yes, this product can be used on molting birds. Make sure when you apply the spot-on treatment to part the feathers as much as you can so that the treatment can be absorbed through the bird's skin quickly. The bird may appear slightly wet after the treatment so try to keep them warm until the treatment is fully absorbed and dispersed.

I hope this helps you.

how many MLS in bottle as i can use this on my chickens just a drop on there necks,Sandra

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Sandra,

Ivermectin is the active ingredient in this product, and it is not licensed for use on chickens. If you wanted to use this product you would need to do so under your vet's guidance. Please be aware for food-producing animals, there is no information about the withdrawal period for eggs or meat following use of Ivermectin, so it is not recommended that either meat or eggs are eaten following administration of the chemical.

If you're able to get in touch and tell us which parasites are of concern, we can recommend a suitable product for your chickens.
