We finally have medicated feed available. We first brought MinnFinn to treat external infections and now we have MedFinn to help with gram-negative internal bacterial infections. MedFinn is based on the science behind the treatment of bacterial infections. The dose of antibiotic in the feed, the amount of feed used and the duration fed are all very specific. The directions and antibiotics used in other products are often vague and you the user are often left guessing. If the feeding is done incorrectly there is a good chance you can either get an ineffective treatment or cause health issues in the fish.
As with any antibiotic, if you do not use it long enough or at too low a dose you can create resistance to the antibiotic in the bacteria you are trying to eliminate. With the misuse and broad use of oxytetracycline over the years, there are many bacteria that are resistant to it thus we lose a tool in our toolbox. In the development of MedFinn it is not the medication that is different, it is the care we have put into the way it is used. We ensure that the quantity in the food is at the correct level and then we help you determine the amount you need to feed to ensure a proper treatment.
We will supply a spreadsheet to distributors and retailers, which will be used to calculate the amount of medicated feed needed. All you need from your customer is the length of all the fish in the pond to be treated. The sheet will calculate an estimated weight and the amount of food needed for the 10-day treatment.
Call for a Fact Sheet and the price list. Please do not hesitate calling me if you have any questions.
