AdvaCare is a GMP manufacturer of Albendazole Boluses.
Albendazole is a veteran anthelmintic (wormer) compound belonging to the chemical class of the benzimidazoles. Albendazole is one of the generic anthelmintics most used on livestock worldwide.
As a synthetic anthelmintic, albendazole bolus belongs to a group of benzimidazole derivatives that help to fight against a broad range of worms and even adult stages of liver fluke. It works by causing degenerative alterations in the intestinal cells.
Albendazole is effective against gastrointestinal roundworms and lungworms of livestock, including adults and L4-larvae of the most important species (e.g. of the genus Bunostomum, Haemonchus, Ostertagia – Teladorsagia, Trichostrongylus, Cooperia, Nematodirus, Chabertia, Oesophagostomum, Trichuris, Dictyocaulus, etc.) as well as arrested larvae of several species. It is also effective against most livestock tapeworms (e.g. Moniezia, Taenia) and against adult liver flukes (Fasciola hepatica and Fascioloides magna), but not against immature stages.
Albendazole has no efficacy against external parasites.
It is important to note that AdvaCare’s albendazole boluses are for veterinary purposes only. There are types available for human use, however, you should only use the kind that has been prescribed by a veterinary doctor or animal care specialist for an animal.
As with all veterinary medicine, some unwanted effects can occur from the use of albendazole boluses. Always consult a veterinary physician or animal care specialist for medical advice before use.
