Worm at the same time as antibiotic treatment?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a chicken (called Delores btw!) who is being treated for an upper respiratory tract infection and is on an antibiotic called Marbocyl. I’ve also had her results back from Westgate Labs showing she’s got roundworms (600 epg) I’ve got some Flubenvet 1% can I give it to her at the same time as her antibiotics or should I wait until she’s finished her course? I don’t want to overload her system! Any advice would be much appreciated. TIA

Agreed, let her finish her antibiotics, which will knock her gut flora for six anyway, leave at least a week and then worm. Both are pretty strong stuff, so I would support her gut flora with something like herbal gut conditioner while you are worming and for a week afterwards.
