How to use Avitrol Plus Bird Wormer Syrup

Avitrol Plus Bird Wormer Syrup is designed for preventative and therapeutic deworming. Read the instructions carefully before use.

Some varieties of bird show levamisole sensitivity. DO NOT use with Gouldian Finches or other bird species with known sensitivity. Suitable for parrots, but use with caution as some birds can be more sensitive than others.

Avoid the treatment of birds that are stressed or ill (unless showing symptoms of worm infestation) and birds feeding young. Administer in cooler weather for better dosage control.

Caged birds should be treated for worms every 6-8 months – ideally in spring and autumn. Dose the entire flock twice, 14 days apart, in order to prevent re-infection of birds from eggs/larvae in the immediate environment. 24 hours after each dose, the cage or aviary should be cleaned and disinfected, and all bedding replaced.

Avitrol Plus Syrup is administered in drinking water. Provide only freshly-made, medicated drinking water solution and seed for 24 hours, then replace with clean water and feed birds as normal. In hot weather, the recommended dosage should be diluted with up to double the amount of water listed to account for increased water consumption.

The recommended dosage of Avitrol Plus is 1 drop of syrup concentrate per 10 grams of bird bodyweight. Dilute 12 drops/0.5 ml of syrup concentrate in 20-25 ml of drinking water.

As with any medication, it is not recommended that eggs or meat of a bird treated with Avitrol Plus are consumed for at least 7 days after treatment. While many chicken owners use Avitrol Plus for their birds, this use is off-label and residue data for meat and egg withholding times is not currently available.
