Red mite treatment with Exzolt


Exzolt treatment for mites

From this


to this 




Exzolt is a water-soluble treatment for red mites in poultry based on the active Fluralaner (the same as in Bravecto spot-on treatment for fleas in dogs and cats).  When used in poultry it is added to the drinking water at the rate of 1/20th ml per kg liveweight, repeated 7 days later.

So ten 2kg hens will need 
10 x 2kg x 0.05ml/kg  x doses = 2ml in total.

The average Shaver or Hyline hen weighs 2kg. If you have heavy breeds of fowl (e.g orpingtons) you need to work on 3kg per bird, or if you are dosing young birds, silkies or bantams then it is best to weigh a sample.

Exzolt is not cheap, but as Avivet Ltd supplies large commercial farms, we carry enough stock to meet the needs of farmers with thousands of birds, and are able to offer advantageous pricing compared to general veterinary practices.  Exzolt is a viscous liquid and there is quite a bit of waste involved in handling very small amounts, so the minimum available is 2ml.
