Beaphar Anti-Parasite Spot On for medium sized birds is a veterinary medicine containing Ivermectin (25ug per pipette), which is effective against roundworms, feather lice, red (blood) mites, feather mites, air sac mites and mange mites (scaly face).
How To Use
Twist off the cap and apply entire contents of pipette to the base of the feathers, on the bird’s neck. Birds feathers are adapted to shed rain and this same principle will cause the bird spot-on to run-off if applied superficially. It is important that the solution be applied onto the skin or soft down feathers, otherwise it will not work. While squeezing out the contents, spread the solution over as great a surface of the skin as possible. - For parakeets, apply one pipette per bird. - For rosellas, quails and mynah birds, use up to 2 pipettes per bird (apply one pipette per 50-125g bodyweight). Treatment can be repeated after 4 weeks.
