Vetafarm Avimec 50mL

Keep your budgie buddies tip-top with Vetafarm Avimec 50mL!

Budgerigars, and many other bird species, can be struck by the burrowing mite (Knemidokoptes spp.), more commonly known as Scaly Face Mite. In budgies, mostly the head is affected (especially the beak, the cere, and the eyelids). Also, the legs and feet can be affected and in really severe cases the area around the bird’s vent will show signs of infestation.

Burrowing mites are transmitted mainly in the nest box during feeding; that is, during direct body contact from parents unto the chicks. A transmission between adult birds has also been observed, although this rarely happens. Thus special attention should be paid in pairs of birds and flocks if an infection with burrowing mites has occurred! To help keep the cage clean, why not have a look at our Diatomaceous Earth?

Many so-called ‘treatments’ are available for Scaly Mite infestation. These range from paraffin oil and petroleum jelly to strong disinfectants. Mostly these treatments are designed to suffocate the mite or kill on contact. Older treatments are messy, inconsistent, and fiddly to apply.

Technology has now caught up with this disease and Avimec, containing ivermectin, is now available to treat Knemidocoptes. Using a simple ‘drop-on’ formula the liquid is applied to the bird’s skin once weekly for three weeks. Depending on the severity of the disease, the cure will take from 3 to 8 weeks as the bird’s body repairs the areas of damage.

You can also find our range of Pet Health products here!
