This is the reply I got when I emailed the Melbourne Vet Clinic back in Feb, I assume it hasn't changed too much.

Hi Michelle

We can supply you with Moxidectin. It can be given orally or put on the skin (5ml/L or 0.25ml/400g bw). 125ml Bottle costs $27.50. Postage would be approximately $9.50. If you would like to place an order we do accept credit card payment over the phone, our number is 03 9764 9000.

Regards
Dr Colin Walker
Melbourne Bird Veterinary Clinic



The difference between ivomec and ivomec plus is that the 'plus' component refers to Prazinquatel (sp?) that also treats tape worm. As discussed in previous threads in the Good Sammy folder, you don't have to treat your chooks for tape worm every time you worm them, as long as you do it a couple of times per year (so every second time). Although it will do no harm if you do give them the tape worm treatment each time if thats the only product you have.

Buying Moxidectin from the Melb Clinic works out much dearer per mL than buying it in bulk, but thats to be expected I guess. There is several businesses offering it for sale much cheaper, but it would be a bit of a gamble buying it off them I guess. Some people have said that their local vet decants in and sells it in smaller quantities, so that might also be worth a go.

There are several threads in Good Sammy about ivomec, moxidectin and the mectins in general if you need any more info, just pop 'mectin' into the search bar.

:D

Moxidectin itself doesn't; it is also sold as Moxidectin or Moxidectin Plus.

I didn't specifically ask which one they were selling, but I have read about others who have bought moxi plus from the clinic.

So they do sell it, but not sure if this price is also applicable for moxi plus, or if its just for moxi.

I've bought it. Pretty sure it was just Moxi, not plus. Will check tomorrow.

They sell Moxidectin (without praziquantel) & they also sell Moxidectin Plus (which contains praziquantel).

I've just bought both today (as I'll only treat with the Moxidectin Plus once a year, and with Moxidectin the other times I worm), together with some Baycox.

Prices, directly from my email received 20/6/2011 asking about Moxidectin, Prazivet (which is praziquantel by itself) & Baycox, are listed below:

Thank you for your email. We do have the Moxidectin and Baycox however we do not have the Prazivet by itself. Our product Moxidectin Plus combines the Moxidectin and Praziquantel (the active ingredient of Prazivet). We supply them in 125ml bottles. The Baycox is $44 and the Moxidectin Plus is $33. Postage for one bottle of each going express is $9.50. If you would like to purchase these products please give us a call at the clinic on 03 9764 9000.

I'll tell you the prices of the Moxidection (not the plus) when I receive the invoice & products in the mail. I can't recall the quantities I worked out with them, so can't remember how much they each cost for smaller volumes (which they'll do for you.. but you pay more).

Does Ivomec go off? We got some from a vet 4-5 years ago (maybe more) to treat guinea pigs and its still in the cupboard.

Yes it does go off. The original bottle would have had an expiry date, but if it was re-packaged by your vet that may not be the case. I just looked at a bottle of ivomec I ordered in last week and it expires in 2013. Judging by that, I would think that yours will be out of date.

Given that most medicines are organic subtances in one form or another then the expiry date is only a guide to the length of time a substance may be kept.

There are two major things that affect just about all medicine substance - from wormers and antibiotic to anything else you can think about. The two major things are ultraviolet light and temperature. All medicines should be stored away from ultraviolet light (sunshine) and best in a darkened cupboard. For temperature, heat will quickly shorten the shelf life but equally so will a the cold. A refridgerator that is approaching freezing most of the time (good for beer in other words) is also shortening the shelf life of the medical product. For most things a cool dark place is the best storage place.

Thanks for that info, Mike. I knew about the dark and the cool, but didn't know about being too cold (I assumed colder was better as long as it wasn't freezing)

When treating with Ivomec do we follow the same 10 day repeat rule as with other wormers?

Yes

Because you are trying to kill any worms that have hatched since the previous worming. Wormers dont normally kill worm eggs, just live worms. Fourteen days is better than ten days.
