Percutaneous application of levamisole in swine
Gaceta Veterinaria 41(338): 102-104
During 1978, 2950 pigs were treated percutaneously with 15 mg/kg body-weight levamisole. A mixture was made of 10 g levamisole, 20 g dimethyl sulphoxide and 100 ml isopropyl alcohol and 1.5 ml/10kg was squirted on to the back of the animal. A large number of Ascaris were voided 48 h after treatment and no worms were found after one week. No pulmonary helminths (Metastrongylus sp.) were found at autopsy of the treated pigs.
