Authors : Ph. DORCHIES, F. POTHIER, H. NAVETAT, D. BAROUX et L. CHARRIER.
Summary : Twenty eight charolaise adult cows, naturally infected by Fasciola hepatica, were distributed among 4 groups on the basis of their coproscopical results. A control group A received a placebo, groups B and C were treated with albendazole (10 mg/kg) at time of their return to cowshed. The same treatment was repeated two months later in group C. Group D received fenbendazole (7,5 mg/kg) at time of their return to cowshed, then nitroxinil (10 mg/kg) two months later. The flukes were searched in livers three weeks after the last treatment. The fasciolicidal activities of albendazole was 85 p. 100 in group B and 96.2 p. 100 in group C. The activity of nitroxinil was 86,8 p. 100. These results confirm the interest of an early treatment of the animals against Fasciola hepatica, at the strait end of their gazing period.
Keywords : Fasciola hepatica - Albendazole - Nitroxinil - Cattle.
