Use of narrow spectrum drugs

When haemonchosis is present or a chronic condition of haemonchosis and fasciolosis, animals can be treated with a salicylanilide drug such as rafoxanide or closantel. These drugs have the added benefit of treating the animals for nasal bots.

Use of a narrow spectrum drug rather than a combined fluke and worm drench helps reduce the usage of the broad spectrum wormers and slow the onset of anthelmintic resistance.
