Hi, Welcome to JustAnswer. You're through to Chris, a Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you as soon as possible

Expert:  Dr Chris replied 21 days ago.

Thanks for your question. The mediation you describe would need to be purchased locally as I very much doubt any of the UK companies which sell this product could legally ship to Uganda. It is also a prescription product in the UK, so needs to be provided based on a prescription from a UK vet who has examined the animals directly.

An alternative for treatment of red mites on poultry would be ivermectin 1% spot on solution which may be more available but is probably less practical for 10,000 birds.

I'm sorry not to be able to help further with this.

Please let me know if you need any further help or advice.

How and where can i get ivermectin 1%
Expert:  Dr Chris replied 21 days ago.

It will be very costly and time consuming to treat 10,000 birds that way though

You could contact the manufacturer of the EXZOLT (MSD Animal Health) and see if they can suggest how it can be supplied to Uganda?
