Nilzan LV Oral Drench contains Oxyclozanide;
Oxyclozanide is an anthelmintic drug commonly used in veterinary medicine to control internal parasites in livestock. It is known for its effectiveness against various parasites, including liver flukes and gastrointestinal roundworms. Oxyclozanide is considered a very good active ingredient for parasite control:
- Broad-spectrum activity: Oxyclozanide has a broad-spectrum activity, which means it can target and control various types of parasites. It is particularly effective against liver fluke, which are responsible for causing significant economic losses in livestock.
- High efficacy: Oxyclozanide has been proven to be highly effective against both mature and immature stages of parasites. It acts by interfering with the energy metabolism of parasites, resulting in their death or expulsion from the host’s body.
- Limited resistance: Resistance development is a concern when using anthelmintic drugs. However, compared to some other anthelmintics, the development of resistance to Oxyclozanide has been reported to be relatively low. This is important for sustainable parasite control as it helps to preserve the effectiveness of the drug over time.
- Safety profile: Oxyclozanide is generally well-tolerated by animals when used according to the recommended dosage. It has a low toxicity level, and few reported side effects. However, it is always important to follow proper dosing instructions and consult a veterinarian before administering any medication.
