Pig farmers face severe competition. To bring competitive products onto the market, they have to know and understand the most important factors influencing their production output and costs, because the proper management of these factors will improve profitability. Part of this management includes the strategic use of flubendazole for deworming.

Looking at the pre-patent period of Ascaris suum and keeping into account the number of eggs laid per day by mature female worms (on average 200,000), it is crucial that a strict and carefully planned treatment schedule, in combination with strict hygienic measures, is followed.

Studies have demonstrated that in order to minimise the level of contamination and continuous recontamination, a five-day treatment every five weeks can be nearly 100% effective and will enhance the creation of a virtually worm-poor pig production site.

Therefore, the strategic deworming schedule below can be regarded as a standard for performance excellence in pig meat production.

STRATEGIC DEWORMING FOR SLAUGHTER PIGS

Important Safety Information

Always read, understand, and follow label directions.

Withholding Periods

PIGS

  • Pigs producing meat or offal for human consumption must not be sold for slaughter either during treatment or within 7 days of the last treatment

POULTRY

  • Withdrawal period for poultry meat and eggs - Nil

Directions For Use

Flubenol™ 5% is indicated for worm infestations in pigs and poultry.

Pigs: infestations with gastrointestinal worms (Ascaris suum, Hyostrongylus rubidus, Oesophagostomum dentatum, Trichuris suis, Strongyloides ransomi) and lungworms (Metastrongylus apri).

Poultry: infestations with gastrointestinal worms (Ascaridia galli, Heterakis gallinarum, Capillaria spp., Amidostomum anseris and Trichostrongylus tenuis, Railientina sp.) and gapeworm (Syngamus trachea)

The use of Flubenol™ 5% is contraindicated in pigeons and parrots.

In pigs an overdose in the feed of 250ppm flubendazole or higher (ie more than 8 times the normal dose) can bring about short-lasting diarrhea (soft or water dung) without other clinical signs or effects with reference to the growth of the animals. This loose dung occurs from the second treatment day and is maximal after around 7-12 days.

In poultry even 3 times the hightest dose (180ppm flubendazole) for 7 days had no negative effects on egg production, egg quality, hatching results, growth of offspring or in any other respect.

Dosage and Administration

PIGS

Group treatment of piglets and fatteners

30 g flubendazole per tonne of feed (30ppm) for 5 consecutive days. In case of a severe infestation with T. suis, the animals should be treated for 10 days

Group treatement of breeding pigs

30g flubendazole per tonne of feed (30ppm) during 10 consecutive days.

Individual and single administration to breeding pigs

Flubenol™ 5% is strewn over the feed in a dose of 5mg per kg of body weight. This corresponds to 1 measuring spoon per 130kg of body weight.

Flubenol™ 5% should be mixed into the feed and the mixture administered. For a group treatment, make sure that all animals take in enough Flubenol™ 5%. The medicine should therefore be well mixed into the feed so that a homogenous mixture is obtained. It should not be strewn over pellets or crumbs since this gives a non-homogeneous mixture.

  • 20g flubendazole per tonne (20ppm) corresponds to 400g of Flubenol™ 5% per tonne of feed.
  • 30g flubendazole per tonne (30ppm) corresponds to 600g of Flubenol™ 5% per tonne of feed.
  • 60g flubendazole per tonne (60ppm) corresponds to 1.2kg of Flubenol™ 5% per tonne of feed.

Important

Treatment with Flubenol™ 5% gives optimal results only when strict hygiene of the pig sheds and the poultry houses is practiced.
