TARGET SPECIES

INDICATIONS

It is recommended for dehelmintisation of pigs and poultry in case of infestations with pulmonary and gastrointestinal parasites and nematodes.

Pigs - Ascaris suum, Hyostrongylus rubidus, Oesophagostomum dentatum, Trichuris suis, Strongyloides ransomi, Metastrongylus apri.

Poultry - Syngamus trachea, Ascaridia galli, Heterakis gallinarium, Capillaria spp., Trichostrongylus tenuis, Railletina spp. Flubendazole is an antihelmintic from the group of benzimidazoles with vermicidal, larvicidal and ovicidal effect in gastrointestinal and lung infections caused by nematodes and cestodes. The bioavailability of the substance and its antiparasitic effect depend less on the maximum concentration of the active substance at gastrointestinal and plasma levels, but more on the duration of contact between the substance and the parasite. Flubendazole acts by inhibiting cell uptake processes from the microtubules of intestinal cells to nematodes or skin cells to cestodes. The primary action consists in inhibiting the microtubule polymerization by β-tubulin binding, a process that prevents the uptake of glucose by the parasites.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Do not administer in animals with intolerance to flubendazole.
