Where is all the flubenvet
« on: November 25, 2012, 01:54:02 pm »
I've spent most of the morning searching the Internet for flubenvet. It's out of stock every where I look. What's going on?
I used the last of my flubenvet on the last round of worming I did, was going to get more in when it got close to the time it was needed again. But as luck would have it ( luck is being a right t**t to me at the moment  :huff: ) I need some now because one of my black rock girls (scabbers) has what I believe to be black head and flubenvet is the recommended treatment.
Dose anyone know where I can get some, any advice would be great.

I think the manufacturer is sorting the licensing of the product. Medicines need relicensed at intervals and sometimes this can cause a shortage for a while until the backlog is caught back up once it is relicensed .

( I'm not sure what I've wrote makes sense but I understand what I mean   ;D )

I've been using Panacur 10% suspension on my birds. Could be a useful alternative. I never like relying all the time on the same wormer as it could build up resistance.

Do you just squirt it in their beaks?
I have done that for geese but not ducks or chickens. Hmmm, she thinks about catching them all......

I heard they are not currently making it, the production line has been switched to do other things, I heard that they are due to start again in the new year, but that was at the end of a very long grape vine!

Not tried to get flubenvet because l have tried my first bag of pellets with the flubenvet in it from marriages.  Its a lot easier to use and cheaper than the powdered stuff.

Yes, I do too - I have a tub of the powder stuff too just in case, but pellets is so much easier.

I had a look for the pellets as well , also out of stock. Must admit didn't look very hard for that as it would mean changing the diet ( as girls are on mixed corn) . Didn't want to change diet as that could upset there little tums in other ways.  My girls seem to be doing OK on mixed corn, still getting 12 or 13 eggs a day from 15 birds.


 Love the link on the bottom of my original post :thumbsup: . That is were I always get my flubenvet , they don't have any! Lying sods.

I asked at our local store today about something & the bloke said they'd had problems with the last batch - good job mine don't need worming for 3 months x

Managed to find some today  :thumbsup: . Only available in big tubs, so cost a bit. But I don't care my scabbers needs it. Found it at viovet.co.uk.  I'll believe it when it turns up  :fc: :fc: .
