The activity of ivermectin against common nematode parasites of sheep was examined in 2 experiments. In the 1st experiment, 14 sheep with naturally acquired infections were assigned to 2 groups of 7 sheep each. Sheep in 1 group were treated with 200 micrograms of ivermectin/kg of body weight and the remainder served as nontreated controls. In the 2nd(More)
Lasalocid and monensin were incorporated into pelleted feed and evaluated as anticoccidials in confinement-reared lambs from weaning to market weight. A total of 69 lambs were allotted to 3 equal groups that received unmedicated feed (100 mg/kg of food) or monensin-medicated feed (17 to 33 mg/kg). Each lamb was inoculated orally with a suspension of 24,000(More)
Twenty coccidia-free Holstein bull calves were allotted to groups to study effects of treatment with lasalocid and decoquinate on subsequent resistance to coccidiosis (Eimeria spp infections). Calves fed medicated rations of either drug at dosages of 50 mg/kg of feed (approx 1.2 mg/kg of body weight) had significantly fewer oocysts (P less than 0.01) than(More)
Two formulations of avermectin B1a, C-076 and MK-933, were examined for anthelmintic activity in two trials, each using 20 calves with experimentally produced nematode infections. In one trial, C-076 was given orally, and in the other trial, MK-933 was given by injection at dosages of 50, 100, and 200 micrograms/kg of body weight. Treated calves were held(More)
