Efficacies of oxfendazole, fenbendazole and ivermectin against gastro-intestinal nematodes of sheep and goat in Zambia


, : Efficacies of oxfendazole, fenbendazole and ivermectin against gastro-intestinal nematodes of sheep and goat in Zambia. Bulletin of Animal Health and Production in Africa 40(4): 287-288

Fourteen goats were treated with ivermectin (200 micro g/kg, sc) and 15 ewes, in 3 groups of 5 animals each, were treated with oxfendazole (5mg/kg orally), fenbendazole (5mg/kg orally) or ivermectin (200 micro g/kg sc). The animals, from 2 farms in Zambia, were predominantly naturally infected with Haemonchus contortus; 11, 12 and 12 goats were also positive for ova of Trichostrongylus, Oesophagostomum and Strongyloides, respectively.
