INJECTABLE ANTIPARASITIC BRANDS for veterinary use in LIVESTOCK - cattle, sheep, goats, swine
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. most benzimidazoles).
For general features, advantages and disadvantages of injectables as a delivery method visit the specific article on injectables in this site.
This section contains articles on commercial antiparasitic brands for injection to livestock most common in English-speaking countries (with focus on USA, UK, Ireland, Australia & New Zealand).
Interestingly, whereas closantel, doramectin, levamisole & ricobendazole injectables are very much used in livestock in many other countries (e.g. in Latin America), they are rather unfrequent in English-speaking countries.
