Control of selenium and cobalt deficiency in lambs by supplementation of oral anthelmintics






Veterinary Record 123(9): 217-218

Control of selenium and cobalt deficiency in lambs by supplementation of oral anthelmintics

The benefits of the inclusion of cobalt and selenium supplements in anthelmintic preparations were demonstrated in a 10-week trial with cobalt- and selenium-deficient blackface wethers. The anthelmintics were based on oxfendazole and on levamisole plus oxyclozanide; three doses provided, in total, 38 mg cobalt and 7.2 or 11.3 mg selenium. Administration of the supplements prevented the weight loss and reduction in food intake observed in unsupplemented animals.
