 Dos and Don’ts
·  Don't overdose or under-dose.
·  Pregnant animals can be dosed with pregnancy safe anthelmintics like Closental whenever required. However avoiding of any medication during pregnancy is desirable.
·  Don't use Albendazole and Mebendazole –in 1st trimester of pregnancy.
·   Frequently change the drug for dosing to avoid development of resistance.
·   Chop the paddy straw 2 inches at the base and then feed the animals to prevent Fascioliasis.
·  Coccidiostats should be given to lambs and kids whenever required.
·  More concentration of animals in a grazing area warrants greater attention on parasitic diseases. It also calls for one dosing in high land pastures after some time of migration as worm load accumulates.
·   Give appropriate dose of medicine as per recommendation of qualified veterinarian.
