OxymV B for sick duckling

I had a duckling with a respiratory infection. I didn’t think she’d make it. This product came quickly and worked wonders. She’s good as new! Quite a large tub too so I’ll have some on hand if ever I have a sick bird.

It worked but....

I bought this to give to my laying hens as that was how it was advertised....when it came it kind of inferred that is was NOT for laying chickens? I googled it and it seems lots of people use it for laying hens....but it was not meant for them....i was pretty desperate, and it has worked. None of them died....and as no one is laying I guess eating the eggs isn’t an issue. Would prefer clarity around wether this is indeed ok to give to laying chickens and if so what is a good withholding period.

HI Linda, Oxymav B only has registration for use in ornamental caged birds (eg canaries, budgies, parrots etc). It has not been registered for use in birds producing food for human consumption and so any such use would be considered off-label. As such there is no withholding period information available. Your veterinarian may be able to recommend off-label usage of various medications but otherwise we can only recommend usage of the product as per the label directions.
