Injection is one of the most common delivery route of many antiparasitics to livestock, particularly those targeting internal parasites (e.g. anthelmintics). But some active ingredients are not suited for this route, e.g. those that are not or only very poorly soluble in water (e.g. benzimidazoles).

For general features, advantages and disadvantages of injectables as a delivery method visit the specific article on injectables in this site.
