A convenient and broad spectrum bird wormer which controls thread, caecal, round, gape, gizzard and important tape worms in caged birds. Avitrol Plus syrup can be added to the drinking water, or dosed directly to the bird's beak. Avitrol tablets provide a secure method of dosing individual birds. Available in 100 tablets

Ingredients: Levamisole Hydrochloride and Praziquantel

Do not feed birds 24 hours before or 3 hours after treatment. Treat all birds in the same loft or cage. Thoroughly clean and disinfect the loft or cage 3 days after treatment. To prevent re-infestation, practice good hygiene and sanitation, and eliminate dampness. Ideally the birds should be moved into a clean cage 48 hours after initial treatment, and the old cage thoroughly scrubbed and disinfected. To prevent infection from the outside, prevent birds access to intermediate hosts, e.g. grasshoppers, cockroaches and earthworms. Wild birds can infect the aviary with their droppings.

ContraindicationsAdministration to species or strains of birds known to be sensitive to the effects of levamisole.
ActionsAnthelmintic. The major mode of action of levamisole is on the cholinergic receptor of the neuromuscular junction, causing paralysis of the parasite. Levamisole has been shown to inhibit fumarate reductase and to affect the rate of incorporation of glucose into glycogen.Praziquantel is a highly specific cestocidal drug that acts by damaging the tegument, inhibiting glucose uptake and stimulating lactate release. Tapeworms are destroyed in situ.

Treatment during the breeding season or of racing pigeons is not recommended.Vomiting may occur (see Adverse Reactions). To reduce the likelihood of vomiting, do not handle birds for at least ten minutes after treatment.If worm problems persist consult a veterinarian.Harmful if swallowed.
