Adult pigeons: Before mating; during the first part of the brooding period; after return from races when the birds have been in travel boxes/baskets.
For oral administration.
The tablet (Half tablet) is placed directly into the mouth. To assist dosing the pigeon should be held by a second person. The tablet should be gently pushed through the open beak and throat as far as possible into the gullet. All birds in the loft should preferably be treated before feeding. At the time of treatment no drinking troughs should be present until 2 hours after treatment when they can be returned to the loft after thorough disinfection. All pigeons in the loft should be treated simultaneously to prevent untreated birds acting as a source of re-infection.
Repeat the treatment when the possibility of re-infection is high – at the start of the reproductive period, at the beginning of brooding, when bringing in new birds.

For use in pigeons only.
