Flubenvet 1% Medicated Premixture - 60gm (requires prescription)
Flubenvet is a well known poultry wormer which is available in a new pack size (60gm) and is designed specifically for the small domestic poultry keeper.
Treatment with Flubenvet 1%, an in-feed medication, helps to resolve the worm problem and the 60gm pack treats around 20 chickens. Full instructions for control of worms plus a measuring scoop for accurate dosing are included with the pack.
Flubenvet Medicated Premixture is effective against gapeworm, large roundworm, caecal worm, hairworm and gizzard worm in chickens, turkeys and geese. Activity includes adult worms, larvae and eggs.
Birds must not be slaughtered for human consumption during treatment. Treated birds may be slaughtered for human consumption only after 7 days from the last treatment.
Meat Withdrawl time: 7 days
There is no witholding period for chickens producing eggs for human consumption. Egg withdrawal period: zero days.
Flubenvet 240g and 60g pots are not POM-VPS medicines per se, but rather medicated premixtures (POM-VPS medicines mixed with other feed materials). Schedule 5 of the Veterinary Medicines Regulations restricts the supply of medicated premixtures to the manufacturer of the product or a Category 8 Distributor of medicated feeds/premixtures. They may only supply such medicated premixtures to an approved manufacturer of final medicated feed or another Category 8 Distributor.
However, there is an exemption under Schedule 5 of the Regulations which permits a veterinary surgeon, pharmacist or a livestock/avian SQP to sell a medicated premixture from registered/approved premises, provided that:
(i) the vet, pharmacist or SQP treats the premixture as if it was a POM-VPS medicines - i.e. POM-VPS storage, prescribing, supply and record-keeping requirements apply;
(ii) the premixture are only supplied to domestic keepers of poultry i.e. a person who keeps poultry on domestic premises, for feeding on those premises, non-food producing birds, or birds kept purely for private domestic consumption. If meat or eggs are sold by the poultry keeper, even farm gate sales, then the exemption does not apply, and the user of the premixture must be an approved manufacturer of medicated feedingstuffs.
