Moxidectin Plus is a fully water-soluble palatable syrup.  Added to the drinking water for 24 hours, it clears roundworm (Ascaridia spp.), hairworm (Capillaria spp.) and tapeworm (cestode) infection.  It is also effective against all external parasites that feed off body fluids, including mites and pigeon flies (Pseudolynchia spp.).  Moxidectin Plus also eliminates airsac mites (Sternostoma spp., Cytodites spp.).  It has a wide safety margin and is safe to use during racing and breeding.  It does not affect feather quality and is safe to use during moulting.  Moxidectin Plus does not cause nausea and so the birds can be fed and loft-flown normally during treatment
Not to be used in birds producing meat or eggs for human consumption

Store below 30C (room temperature) in a dry place
