Dr Rob Marshall`s Quik Gel has disinfecting qualities, which temporally prevent an infection from worsening, while waiting for the results of culture tests to confirm a diagnosis and the best choice of medicine. Also a great choice during Breeding Season
Quik Gel also provides a sick bird with enough energy to sustain it during this short 1-2 day period of time. Very sick birds may need crop needle feeding.
The cleansing agents in Quik-Gel quickly restore top health by cleansing the mouth and establishing an acid crop.
Critical times when the entire flock would benefit from the administration of Quik Gel in the drinking water include:
- Cold, Hot or Wet Spells,
- Airsac mites,
- Egg Binding,
- Nestling Rejections,
- Air in the Crop,
- Outbreak of Disease (e.g mite infestations, coccidiosis)
- Weaning Youngsters and following a course of antibiotics.
- Breeding SeasonQuik gel mixed at a dose of 2ml per litre of drinking water for 3 consecutive days during a stress period, outbreak of disease and following a course of antibiotics.
Administer Quik Gel for 2 days to maintain energy levels when temperatures fall below 10 degrees.
Quik gel mixed with Megamix (10ml per litre) to help maintain health by establishing acidic conditions in the crop that helps prevent stress and environment-related infections such as Thrush, Ecoli and Coccidiosis from becoming established.
Quik gel is mixed with Megamix (10ml per litre) for 5 days when Thrush has been diagnosed in a flock to help maintain body heat and appetite of in contact birds.
Inactivity and Quietness:
A drop in noise levels may be related to inclement weather or the onset of illness.
A 2 day trial with quik gel may be used to determine whether the lack of noise is related to energy depletion of a disease process.
Nestling Rejection by Gouldians:
Quik gel together with Megamix given for 3 days at the critical ages of nestlings e.g hatching time and pin feather age will significantly reduce the likihood of Gouldian finches ejecting their young from the nest.
This occurs more often with first time breeding pairs as a result of cold or some other physical stress factor.
Energy requirements are significantly higher during the breeding season when parents are feeding their young. Quik gel provides breeding pairs with a plentiful supply of energy so that they remain vital throughout the entire breeding season. This ensures the babies are fed well and do not experience any physical setbacks.
When breeding – 2ml per litre of drinking water or 1kg of soft food mix or 1 drop in 100g of seed or soft food mix.
For Air In Crop:
Quik gel should be used when air is observed in the baby crop. This finding indicates the energy levels of the parent s are depleted.
Air Sac Mites:
Quik gel adminsterd for 2 days following S76 air sac mite treatment to rejuvenate an infested flock.
Please see video below on how to use when mixing it into the seed or can just be added to the drinking water.
Dose & Mixing Instructions Individual sick birds:
One drop (0.1ml) Quik Gel mixed well into 100ml drinking water,
100 grams seed (Lorikeets in 5mls fruit juice) and provide fresh each day for 2-5 days.
