The article presents a guide to an effective livestock parasite control. According to the article, anthelmintics are used widely to treat and prevent worm infections in domestic livestock. Benzimidazole anthelmintics (BZ) are effective against BZ-sensitive nematodes and are ovicidal. Most are effective against tapeworms. Oxyclozanide, nitroxynil, closantel, triclabendazole and albendazole/ricobendazole, at increased dose rates, are all effective against adult flukes present in the bile ducts.
