Two trials were conducted to determine the effect of cambendazole against natural infections of the swine kidneyworm, S. dentatus in sows. In the 1st trial, 9 sows were given a single dose of 20 mg cambendazole/kg body wt in the feed, and 8 sows were not treated. In the 2nd trial, 5 sows were given 40 mg cabendazole/kg body wt and 4 were untreated. Urine volume, S. dentatus eggs per milliliter of urine, egg hatchability and larval survival to the 3rd stage were determined pre- and post- treatment. Adult kidneyworms were counted at necropsy, 14 days after treatments. Only a temporary decline in egg hatchability was observed on day after treatment in each trial, and cambendazole apparently was not effective against adult of S. dentatus.
