This study was undertaken to determine the level of resistance against pyrantel citrate in strains of Oesophagostomum quadrispinulatum and Oesophagostomum dentatum which have previously been found resistant to this anthelmintic. Groups of pigs were artificially infected with batches of infective larvae which were previously found either susceptible or resistant to pyrantel citrate. After treatment with 1, 2 and 4 times the recommended dose (14 mg kg-1) of pyrantel citrate, the resistant O… CONTINUE READING
