MegabacS is a unique water soluble formation proven effectiveness against Megabacteria in caged and aviary birds.

The active within Megabac S is not absorbed from the gut, nor does it affect the normal gut flora of the bird. Therefore treatment of the affected bird is completely safe.

Diagnosis of Megabacteria may be difficult. Not all infected birds shed the organism in their droppings, so false negative tests do occur. The most accurate method of diagnosis is the Gram stain of the proventricular mucosa at necropsy. Avian veterinarians and pathology laboratories can perform this test.

Treatment time is normally 10 days, during this time no other water source should be offered. For treatment in wet cold or foggy weather, birds must be housed indoors. Treated water should be changed daily. Protect treated water from sunlight If a particular bird is not consuming the expected amount of water ( 6 mLs per 100 gm Body Weight ) then the concentration of the medication must be increased accordingly.

Crop Needle dose for Finches. Do not exceed 0.5 mL of fluid to a finch.

Add two level white scoops of Megabac to 3.5 fluid ounces. Mix well. Give the bird 0.5 mL via crop needle - use only a 1 mL syringe so dose given is accurate. Do not try and give this dose to the mouth.

Give once daily for 10 days. Crop needles may be dangerous in finches - this is not a recommended method for repeat doses.

To give one drop to the mouth the dilution becomes - two level scoops per one third of a fluid ounce. Mix well. Carefully give one drop to the birds mouth and allow to swallow.

Give once daily for ten days.

Store the liquid in a light proof container in the refrigerator
