bullet-whitebg.jpg Anthel Bird and Aviary Wormers

All domestic cagebirds can be infected with intestinal parasites (worms). While the degree of infestation varies widely – young birds are those most likely to suffer this danger, particularly so if bred in large outdoor aviaries. Infestation usually occurs via contact with wild birds by way of droppings on food, greenfeed or cage fittings.

Symptoms of worm infestation vary according to the degree of infestation, but generally unthriftyness is usually a fair indication. This can be followed by a loss of appetite, diarrhoea and increasing thirst. Birds at such risk should be treated on a regular three monthly basis. As well as regular worming treatment, great care should be taken with aviary hygiene. All cages should be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected after treatment.

Both ANTHEL Three in One Bird Wormers and the larger two Aviary Wormers contain dl Tetramisole as their active ingredient. Cage birds can be infected with three internal parasite species, namely the common Roundworms (ascaridia galli), as well as Caecal Worms (heterakis gallinarum) and Hairworms (Capillaria spp). Tetramisole is the anthelmintic of choice for the treatment of all three types. ANTHEL Three in One Bird Wormer has no harmful side effects on cage birds, nor will it depress egg laying, It requires 15 times the correct dose to produce any lethal effects. It presents no health danger to other domestic pets or children.

ANTHEL Three in One Bird Wormer is a small 4 mL wormer for the treatment of a single or pair of small cage birds ie: canaries or budgies. Active ingredient is Tetramisole 2mg/mL. Sufficient to treat 100 gram live weight of bird it is presented blister packed in a graduated syringe type applicator for addition to the birds’ drinking water.

ANTHEL Three in One Bird Wormer (AVIARY PACK). In presented in two sizes, in a blister packed 115 ml bottle, and a 500 ml larger bottle. Active ingredient is Tetramisole 4 mg/mL. Most aviaries contain a wide range of cage birds. All will need to be treated equally. ANTHEL Three in One Wormer is administered to the bird’s drinking water. Birds may ‘go off’ their feed if unwell or carrying a worm infestation, they will however drink.

ANTHEL three in one Bird Wormer must be added to fresh drinking water at the rate of 1mL of wormer per 50 gram live weight of bird. Ensure that the wormer is added only to drinking water that will be consumed in 24 hours. Water consumption will vary, depending in geographical location and/or season of the year. It may pay to measure the amount of water drunk over a 24 hour period. Alternatively it may be administered orally to larger birds or added at the appropriate dose to wet feed.
