How does it work:
It is an antihelmintic salicylanilide. Fascioliasis is treated and controlled using it in domestic livestock, including cattle, sheep, and goats. It mainly works by uncoupling oxidative phosphorylation in flukes.
Applications. Or where it is used:
A veterinary medicine active ingredient known as oxyclozanide acts as an antiparasitic against livestock internal parasites (mainly flukes). Pests in agriculture and households are not affected by it. It belongs to the salicylanilides chemical class.
The preparation method includes these steps: nitrification, reduction, and condensation with 3,5,6-trichlorosalicylic acid to obtain oxyclozanide.
How to use:
An oxyclozanide dose of 13-15 mg/kg is usually adequate for treating mature flukes; however, repeated doses (15 mg/kg for 3) are sometimes required to treat immature flukes. Hence, the drug can control ruminant acute fascioliasis.
Dosage of usage:
A drench containing 10 to 15mg of oxyclozanide per kilogram can be administered. As per maximum dosage, cattle are given 100 ml and sheep and goats are given 20 ml. The dose should be tripled for acute fascioliasis in sheep.
1. Cattle & Buffalao: 33 ml/ 100 kg body weight.
2. Sheep & Goat: 10 ml up to 30 kg. body weight.
When sheep are given a dose of 30 mg/kg or more, diarrhea, depression, and weight loss can occur.
