Abstract
Satisfactory control of H. contortus and Trichostrongylus spp. in lambs and weaners was obtained with both thiabendazole and haloxon given at six week intervals. In lambs, during a period of heavy challenge an eight week interval proved too long, especially as it was associated with weaning. In both lambs and weaners weight gains compared satisfactorily in the groups treated with either product in spite of lack of activity against O. columbianun in the haloxon dosed sheep. In suckling lambs, initial dosing against Trichostrongylus spp. and H. contort us was indicated during the seventh week after birth, while no evidence was obtained of infection by O. columbianum until the fifth month.
