Ready-to-use drenches are a popular delivery form for many antiparasitics, particularly for anthelmintics, i.e. those targeting internal parasites, i.e. parasitic worms. For general features, advantages and disadvantages of drenches as a delivery form visit the specific article on drenches in this site.

Use of slow-release devices is nowadays quite reduced. In the past slow-release boluses were also used in cattle in many countries (e.g. with benzimidazoles and macrocyclic lactones) but they have been vastly replaced by high concentration injectables with macrocyclic lactones.

This section contains articles on commercial drenches and slow-release capsules for livestock most common in English-speaking countries (with focus on USA, UK & Australia). Country differences may apply: read the product label!
