Albendex 25 suspension is a broad spectrum anthelmintic (dewormer) used in the control and treatment of gastro-intestinal roundworms (both mature and immature including inhibited Ostertagia Type II ) tapeworms (both heads and segments) and lung worms in cattle, camels, sheep, goats and calves.

ALBENDEX 25 also aids in the control of liver fluke;

  • Fasciola Hepatica
  • Fasciola Gigantica

It is also ovicidal and will kill worm and fluke eggs in animals thus reducing pasture contamination.

Contains: Albendazole 2.5% w/v

Albendex 2.5% Usage:

Albendazole is not used against agricultural or household pests.

In ruminants, a 50% reduction of the diet 36 prior and 8 hours after treatment slows down the passage through the stomach, which increases the bioavailability of albendazole and its metabolites and consequently its efficacy against gastrointestinal parasites.

In carnivores (incl. dogs and cats) delivery with the food increases the bioavailability of all benzimidazoles resulting in a better efficacy.

benzimidazoles have almost no residual effect, i.e. they kill the parasites during a few hours after treatment but offer no significant protection against re-infestation.

Unfortunately, resistance of gastrointestinal roundworms to all benzimidazoles in sheep, goats, cattle and horses is a major problem in numerous countries. Not so yet in pets, swine or poultry.
