Tortoise Wormer plus is a Flubendazole-based medication for use against intestinal helminthic worms (pinworm/threadworm, tapeworm, roundworm and flukes) and external ticks, to help keep your tortoise in tip top condition.
Worms are a fact of life for tortoises; every tortoise carries its own complement of parasitic worms. When in good condition and good health, these worms are not a problem; but as soon as the tortoise is stressed or hibernating, its natural immunity is compromised and internal parasites can take hold. This product will control tapeworms and other helminths, ensuring a successful hibernation.
Tortoise Wormer Plus can be sprinkled onto the tortoise’s food or added to water when bathing. Full instructions can be found on the packet.
Use 0.3g or one level 0.5ml scoop (included) per 2 litres of luke warm water, or sprinkle over enough food for one meal per animal to be treated. It is a good idea to gently mist warm water over any food to be treated, to make the powdered medication 'stick' to the food and be consumed by the tortoise. This is the best way of administering treatment. The correct dosage for all weights of tortoises are per animal: 25 grams to 250 grams = 1 x level blue scoop, 251 grams to 2.5kg = 2 x level blue scoops, 2.5kg and over = 3 x level blue scoops.
