Hello all
I have a flea,heart worm and worm treatment for dogs. It is 'Advocate' brand. It's active ingredients are Moxidectin 25g/L and Imidacloprid 100g/L.
Can this be used on chooks?

Yes people have used it on chickens with no apparent ill effects.

I use Cydectin + sheep drench for heart worm ect and tapeworm in the dogs. I mix it into their dry feed as one of my Maremmas plays hard to catch if he thinks you're trying to catch him.

If it is in tablet form, I use "Cream Cheese" of common brands, mix the pill(s) in with the cream cheese, and it is gone in a flash without any withdrawals or regurgitating. I have four dogs that get hearworm monthly, and other worming treatment every three months. I make sure I do not med them up with all of the different medications pills at once, and like to spread it out over a couple of weeks between different types of pill.

The Advocate is the liquid form. I have no use for it on a dog and didn't want to waste it , as yes it's expensive. Will give it a go on the chooks. Not sure of dosage. Any suggestions??

PER BODY WEIGHT....
for dogs it is .4ml for 4kg body weight, that is point 4 less than half a mill, 1ml for 4kg-10kg, 2.5ml for 10kg-25kg, 4ml for 25kg+

you better have a very good syringe with very fine increments to measure out for a chicken, be careful of over dose, good luck.

Moxidectin for birds is 2mg/ml and dosed at 0.25 -0.5 ml/kg
You will need to do some sums.

The link I posted previously, although directed towards use on dogs, has some handy advice as to methods of measuring and diluting concentrated mectins.
