Dechra has extended its Solustab range of water-soluble products with the launch of Fluboral, a new water-medication for the control of parasites in chickens.
Fluboral contains flubendazole as its active ingredient and this, combined with its Solustab formulation, controls gastro-intestinal nematodes including Ascaridia galli (adult stages), Heterakis gallinarum (adult stages) and Capillaria spp. (adult stages).
The formula can be mixed with drinking water with five seconds of stirring. It has a 24-hour stability without sedimentation of the suspension after dilution in drinking water.
Worms affect the intestinal and respiratory health in chickens which negatively impact both performance and welfare. Husbandry practices such as improved housing, hygiene and management have reduced, but not eliminated, the incidence of parasitic infections.
Johnny Wells West, key account manager, pig and poultry at Dechra, said: “Fluboral is a welcome addition to our Solustab range of water-soluble products, providing effortless and efficient parasite control in drinking water to enable producers to start medication quickly and cost-effectively, as and when needed.”
