Moxidectin Plus Worming Medication for Caged Birds Worming Medication for Caged Birds and Pigeons

Moxidectin Plus is a fully water soluble liquid that contains 2 active ingredients: Moxidectin and Praziquantel. Moxidectin is effective against round worm (Ascaridia spp.), Hair worm (Capillaria spp.) and any external parasties that feed off body fluids, including mites and hippoboscid (feather) flies. Moxidectin is effective against air sac mites (Sternostoma spp., Cytoidites spp.) Praziquantel is effective against tapeworm. Combining these two medications results in broad spectrum parasite control. Both drugs have wide safety margins in birds. They do not effect feather quality during moulting. Birds during treatment can be fed normally and the medications do not cause nausea or lead to vomiting. This medication SHOULD NOT be used during the breeding season with unfeathered chicks in the nest.


For species such as finches and pigeons that drink predictable volumes this can be achieved by:

Flock Treatment:

  • Dillute at the rate of 5 ml-10ml to 1 liter of drinking water and make available to the birds for 24 hours
  • The solution should be made fresh prior to use and provided in a clean drinking vessel
  • Remove all other sources of water.

    For species such as Parrots that drink inconsistently giving an effective dose is best achieved by:

    Individual Dosing:

    Either direct to the beak or via crop tube of 0.25-0.5 ml/500g body weight.

    Active Constituent:

    Moxidectin 1 mg/ml & Praziquantel 18.8 mg/ml
