Flubenol (where can I buy it?)

Postby bushpiglets » Tue Jan 17, 2012 11:41 am

Hi everyone, hope you all had an awesome Christmas and all the best for the New year. I was wondering where you can buy Flubenol from. I have seen that some of you are using it for your chooks and I have tried to find it but had no luck. We live in Rotorua and can only get Aviverm. Happy to drive to get it.

Farmlands maybe? Trader "steve" has sold it on TM but doesn't have listed currently unfortunately.
I use oral Ivermec either directly into the beak or add it to as much water as they will drink in 24 hours - dosage .1ml per kilo (thats point one of a mil, not a whole mil) or 4 mls per litlre of water, repeated after 2 weeks. I do this twice a year and bobs your uncle. My vet buys the big containers and dispences smaller amounts for me.

Hi all . I have got fed up with ringing around tring to get Flubenol. It was supposed to be stocked by RD1 and Falloons in North Auckland but they said they would not stock it due to the cost so I decided to buy the industrial size pack. I am in the process of deciding how much I am going to keep and how much to onsell as I only have 12 chooks! But I am tired of seeing my chooks "gaping" and knowing that the Aviverm I use is not killing the gapeworm! So if anyone is interested in some let me know.

Just a quick clarification - the big advantage of Flubenol seems to be that it is licensed to use for laying hens, with no egg with-holding period. Most other wormers (including Ivermec) have 7 - 14 days when you can't eat the eggs. I have been using Moxidectin and it has a with-holding period. When it is finished I'll switch to Flubenol.

I thought Flubenol for chickens was off label?

I have listed my Flubenol on Trade Me but have been warned off by a "question" from a MAF official. So I have taken the ads off but still have some if people want some. Apparently you are not allowed to buy the commercial 600g size and break it down into smaller sizes to sell. I guess thats why both Falloons and RD1 weren't stocking it.
BUT my chooks don't seem to be "gaping" any more! Yay! I have just finished a week of giving it to them so it appears it worked.

I know, that's what happened to me. ;) I bought a large container of it and had some listed, and the Head Manager of the product 'asked a question' and told me to stop selling it. So I too still have some available... but was even too scared to say it on here in case they tracked me down for advertising it again?

Glad it worked for you Sue! And I also want to know about giving it to chicks too - I want to dose that hen in the cage with the chick you saw but am scared to harm the chick. So guess I'll have to do her when the chick is bigger.

I've wormed chicks with it. Not intentionally but I wanted to do the hen. It's a fairly safe product IMO
