Where can I get flubenvet?

We really need to worm our hens but can't seem to get flubenvet. Is anyone else having the same problem? Does anyone know where to get it?

Usually a vet should have it.
If you can't get it, put apple cider vinegar in water and give garlic and apples to eat.
If its gapeworm, you're going to need something stronger.

I'm in donegal and my 3 local vets don't stock it or any products for chickens , was told not worth there while as chickens are cheap to buy so no one brings them in . My rooster still not in great shape so need something stronger .

You can buy it online from Viovet, I buy the Flubendazole 1%, same active ingredient as Flubenvet. Not sure how much shipping would be but they do ship internationally.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for the helpful responses. It's so frustrating when we are trying to do our best by our poultry when we can't get the help we need. I have looked up the site. Thank you so much for that. Perhaps rich1 this will help you get your rooster sorted too. Many thanks.

I tried to get some with no look until I got dog wormer in Dunnes Stores,a vet told me it has the same ingredient. Was too late for my quail but I have it now for the future

Thanks to everyone. We are nearly sorted now. We can get a vets prescription for the ready mixed medicated layers pellets and our local food supplier will order it in. We should have it by Wednesday. Hope this is helpful to others too.

The active ingredient in flubenvet is flubendazole. Fenbendazole and Mebendazole are near identical to flubendazole and are all the same family, All three do the same thing in birds. one is as safe as the other. Any wormer with one of these three ingredients should be perfectly fine. Just check with a vet first and make sure your dosage is correct.

Update on above. We were given completely wrong information. We were not able to get the premixed layers pellets with flubenvet. We got the prescription and returned to the feed supplier only to discover what they actually had was a game grower for pheasants. If it were used for hens it would have a 10 day egg withdrawal as it had flubenvet 5% . We have since ordered the boxes of flubenvet 1% from Viovet as Melsr suggested. Sorry to have have passed on misinformation.
