Beaphar Anti-Parasite Spot On – Small (Canary/Budgie)
Beaphar Anti-Parasite Spot on for small birds is a veterinary medicine containing Ivermectin (10ug per pipette), which is effective against roundworms, feather lice, red (blood) mites, feather mites, air sac mites and mange mites (scaly face) for up to 4 weeks after treatment. This pack contains 2 pipettes, and is suitable for use on birds weighing 20-50g.
Active Ingredient: Ivermectin 10ug per pipette.
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. A small bird will be quite damp after application, so keep your bird warm until dry. A second treatment should not be required, but if it is, leave 4 weeks before re-applying.
Safety & Storage
Storage: Do not store above 25 °C. Keep in original container, out of sunlight. Dispose of empty pipettes in household rubbish.
Warnings: Keep out of reach of children. For animal treatment only. Use only on birds weighing 20-50g. This would typically include the stockier breeds of canary, budgerigars, or smaller lovebirds. It is an excellent product for clearing airsac mites in Gouldian Finches over 20g. Please be aware that some of the lighter finches will probably weigh less than 20g, and this product should not be used. For cage and aviary bird weighing more than 50g, use Anti-Parasite Medium. For birds weighing more than 300g use Anti-Parasite Large. Do not use on other species of animal. Do not use on sick or convalescing birds. Serious reactions, including deaths, have been reported in dogs (especially Collies, Old English Sheep Dogs & related breeds), tortoises & turtles treated with products containing the active substance. Avoid contact with eyes. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water following treatment. If signs of disease persist or appear following treatment, consult a veterinary surgeon. When treating for external parasites, consider treating the cage/aviary with a suitable product.
