Allfarm Levamisole Concentrate

Product Description

Levamsiole Concentrate Thumb 

A broad-spectrum poultry wormer than treats 3 species of worms - Ascaridia, Heterakis and Capillaria.

  • Withholding Periods:
    • Meat: DO NOT USE Less than 7 days before slaughter.
    • Eggs: No withholding period.
  • If your poultry are only infected with Ascaridia then we recommend using Allfarm Piperazine instead. Piperazine only treats Ascaridia worms (normally the most prevalent worm genus), but it has a wider safety margin and no withholding periods.
  • To determine if your birds have a high worm burden, and the types that are present, you can submit a faecal sample to Parasite Diagnostic Services <www.parasite.com.au>. Details and prices are on their website.

Product Use / Dosage

Allfarm Levamisole Concentrate is administered as a single treatment. If the round worm infestation is severe we recommend the treatment be repeated 17 to 21 days later.

We do not recommend treating with Levamisole Concentrate during hot weather.

 

For flocks / larger numbers of birds:

  • For broad spectrum – Use 36 mg per kg of bodyweight = 72 g per 1000 birds with mean weight of 2 kg per bird
  • For low dose – use 20 mg per kg of bodyweight
  • For Ascaridia galli only: Use 20 mg per kg of bodyweight = 40 g per 1000 birds with mean weight of 2 kg per bird. Repeat dose between 17 to 21 days later.
  • Administer through drinking water over 6 hour period.

 

For small numbers of birds:

  • You need: scales, a sturdy plastic bag, icing sugar or castor sugar.
    recommendation: treating with levamisole is never recommended in hot weather.
  • Weigh 15 g of Levamisole concentrate into the plastic bag. Store unused Levamisole concentrate in an air-tight bag and squeeze out air before sealing.
  • In the same bag weight out 135 g icing sugar. Castor sugar is a suitable substitute. Use regular sugar only as a last resort.
  • Twist the bag to make a bubble, and mix the contents inside by shaking vigorously for 5 mins.
  • 10 g of this powder mix will treat 30 kg liveweight birds.
  • Do not use smaller weights of mix, as the measurements become inaccurate and even mixing cannot be guaranteed.
  • Accurately determine the combined weight of your birds (a healthy in-lay commercial layer will weigh around 2.2 kg).
  • Weigh out 1 g powder mix for every 3 kg bird weight.
  • Determine and measure out the amount of drinking water your birds will consume in 3-4 hours.
  • Dissolve the mix in the water. Ensure that the product is completely dissolved and no crystals remain.
  • Remove all regular sources of drinking water. Depriving birds of water for a few hours prior to treatment will encourage faster consumption, but be careful of dehydration on warmer days.
  • Provide the medicated water to the birds and monitor water consumption.
  • Restore water with fresh once the mix is consumed.
  • If any Levamisole/sugar mix remains, discard. Do not store for later use.

Allfarm Piperazine Soluble Powder

Description / Dosage

Piperazine Thumb 

For the treatment of round worms (Ascaridia spp.) – one of the most prevalent and important intestinal worms of poultry.

  • Piperazine has a wide safety margin and is suitable for all chickens, turkeys, ducks and pigeons.
  • No withholding periods.
  • If your birds are also infected with Heterakis or Capillaria spp. we recommend using Allfarm Levamisole Concentrate instead. This is a broad-spectrum wormer but has a lower safety margin and requires a withholding period before the slaughter of meat birds.
  • To determine if your birds have a high worm burden, and the types that are present, you can submit a faecal sample to Parasite Diagnostic Services <www.parasite.com.au>. Details and prices are on their website.

Dosage:

  • 200 mg / kg (1 g per 5 kg bodyweight)
  • Use 1 kg of Piperazine to 2500 birds with a bodyweight of 2 kg.
  • Administer in medicated water over a 6-8 hour period.
  • It is recommended to repeat administration 6 weeks later when there are known worm burdens.
