Control the three thieves in poultry: large roundworms, cecal worms, and capillary worms

Hygromix® is an in-feed medication for control of parasite infections in chickens associated with large roundworms (Ascaris galli*), cecal worms (Heterakis gallinae**), and capillary worms (Capillaria obsignata).

Internal parasite damage can be difficult to spot. But the "three thieves"—large roundworms, cecal worms, and capillary worms—can cause serious economic losses as a result of inefficient growth, lack of uniformity, and increased production costs. These parasites also can cause an unnecessary increase in feed costs and reduce egg production and quality.1

Control all three worms with one FDA-approved product
Early intervention is the key to efficiently controlling these internal parasites. By controlling poultry worms in layers, pullets, and breeders, Hygromix helps protect intestinal integrity, uniformity, and profitability. Hygromix is proven to work by breaking or interfering with the life cycle of the worm. Because Hygromix works as a control agent, it must be fed continuously to keep parasites at a manageable level.
