The 240g has gone up in price and is much harder to find now as the rules changed for the suppliers making it more expensive for them.

Bowden and Knights 01953 681830 still sell it.

As for the cheapest 60g tub - I put the cheapest (reliable) suppliers I found on this Flubenvet page. Medicanimal often have offers on - like free postage on first order and 10% off from time to time.
Many of the smaller places that claimed cheaper prices for a while didn't have it in stock when I tried to order it

Hope this helps..

Hi,
I have purchased the 240g tub of Flubenvet, I can't remember the exact price I paid for it, but it was under £29.00 and that included delivery, from a company called hyperdrug.
Regards

I started to get the marsdens feed with the flubenvet already in each pellet, saves having to measure each bit out.

The thing that puts me off the pre mixed food is the shelf life - If you buy a bag, you can end up with too much and a shelf life that ends before your next treatment - or - you can be short and are not able to mix any more up for the last couple of days of treatment...

I prefer the 240g or 60g as both can sit in the cupboard for years and mix up the exact quantity.

I have a 240g tub but the reason I usually say go for the 60g tub is it comes with a scoop for measuring the right quantity. I use electronic scales for the 240g to measure the quantity accurately and most people don't want to spend the £50 or so to buy accurate scales.

If you guess the amount of course and go over in quantity, you can't really eat the eggs: it is into the realms of 'untested' and the quantity of Flubenzole getting into the eggs might be higher than a safe level...

That's my thinking of it anyway. :-)07
