Excellent productBy: Eleanor on 9 February 2012I purchased this for my Indian runner ducks 2 of them had sinus infections from a previous Indian runner I had that died. He had 3 tubs full of the psittovet from the vet and still didn't get any better. With this Oxymav B (bought the large 1kg) only had to have it for 5 days instead of the 28 days for the other. They are looking a lot better after treatment and I hope it doesn't return. Thank you for selling this product, a lot cheaper than from a vet too. Glad it came in the post when it did to as one of the Indian runner ducks hatched 4 baby ducklings and the other ducks have now been treated while the mum duck is in another cage with babies. So now I don't have to worry about them catching it.
