Instructions for use in veterinary medicine

Veterinarians prescribe anthelmintic agents in Alben tablets to animals for the prevention and treatment of worm infestations provoked by various types of intestinal parasitic worms. When carrying out prophylactic deworming, veterinarians take into account the data of the epizootological situation in the regions.

For rabbits, fur animals, pigs, birds, cats, dogs, medicine is prescribed for:

  • gastrointestinal nematodoses (bunostomiasis, esophagostomosis, nematodirosis, osteragiosis, hemonhoz, habertiosis, cooperiosis),
  • cestosis (monesiosis, tizanisioz, avitellinoz),
  • trematodoses (dicroceliosis, paramptomatosis),
  • toxoskaryosis,
  • pulmonary helminthiasis (dictiocaulosis, cystocaulosis, metastrongylosis, neostrongylosis, muleriosis, cystocaulosis),
  • mixed helminthic invasions.

For poultry, anthelmintic is used in the treatment of ascariasis, heterosis. Fur animals are treated with Alben from the following worms: uncinaria, toxoscarose, ankylostoma.

Important! Pills for worms can be given to animals, not keeping them day on a hungry diet. There is no need to use laxatives before treatment and prophylactic deworming.

Characteristics of the drug

"Alben" - a broad-spectrum drug. The main active ingredient is albendazole. Probably few people like this name says a lot, so let's look at a little more. Detailed instructions for the use of Albendazole are covered here.

Albendazole:

  • anthelmintic drug,
  • action is aimed at combating parasites (in particular, with worms),
  • well absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract,
  • spreads rapidly throughout the body (within 2-5 hours).

The drug is presented in the form of granules and tablets. Most often it can be found packaged in 25 or 100 tablets in packs (but often you can buy just a few tablets). Sold "Alben" in almost any veterinary clinic.

Patients who want to get rid of worms often ask for natural products with the least side effects. In such cases, I recommend this tool.

The elixir destroys and removes from the body of adults, as well as the larvae and eggs of absolutely all types of parasites. It helps to cleanse the organs and tissues, neutralizes intoxication of the whole organism.

Indications for taking granules and tablets

The medicinal anthelmintic drug, as already mentioned, is widely used, therefore, we shall more specifically analyze in which cases it is best to use it:

  • Gastrointestinal nematodoses. This includes a number of diseases that are caused by roundworms, which belong to the class of nematodes. The first sign that appears in animals is pneumonia. At later stages, serious digestive problems begin: diarrhea, vomiting, anemia, and general exhaustion. Juveniles may begin to lag far behind. Most often, such diseases suffer from animals such as chickens and pigs. But cases of manifestations of diseases of cattle are frequent.
  • Pulmonary nematodoses. Most often go along with gastrointestinal, but there are also separately. The signs of the disease are pneumonia, and in the later stages there are problems with eating and breathing. The obvious signs of infection are multiple and minor hemorrhages in the lungs, as well as white spots on the liver at the opening. The diseases in this group are serious and can quickly be fatal due to serious breathing problems in an animal. It is very important to start treatment at the time so that it passes without serious consequences.
  • Cestodose. Diseases are caused by parasitism of tapeworms (cestodes). The forms of the disease can be chronic (when the worms live in the body for several years) and acute (death of the animal occurs within a month). Obvious signs can be: problems with digestion, convulsions, exhaustion, constant thirst, puffiness. The danger of the disease is damage to the central nervous system of the animal. Coordination problems, seizures, and various bouts of unreasonable activity may begin. In the later stages (with the defeat of the CNS), vision problems begin, which can lead to complete blindness. You can notice this in advance - the eyes begin to grow cloudy, and the animal begins to get lost in the usual setting.
  • Trematodose. Pathogens are representatives of the class of flukes. These parasites affect the gastrointestinal tract, lungs, liver and blood. Once in the body, they stick to the walls of the stomach, and other organs. Signs of infection are all the same problems with digestion (diarrhea, vomiting), drastic weight loss, growth retardation in young animals. The disease is dangerous because the parasites quickly begin to multiply immediately after entering the body. The later treatment begins, the harder and longer it passes.

Pharmacological properties

Albendazole, which is the main component of the drug, is excellent against both mature and immature cestodes, nematodes and trematodes.

The mechanism of action of the drug is quite simple:

  • violates carbohydrate metabolism and microtubule parasites,
  • parasites die and are eliminated from the body naturally.

Can not cope with parasites?

Helminths are dangerous for the body, their metabolic products are toxic and provoke inflammatory processes where they live.

It should immediately begin treatment! Protect yourself and your loved ones!

In such cases, our readers recommend using the newest tool - Tibetta parasites ’Tibetan collection.

It has the following properties:

  • Kills more than 120 types of parasites for 1 course
  • It has an anti-inflammatory effect.
  • Splits and removes eggs and larvae of parasites
  • Destroys pathogenic bacteria and viruses
  • Removes toxins and toxins

Dosage regimen depending on body weight

It should be said that, regardless of the total mass of the animal, on average is applied 1 tablet per 35-50 kilogram body weight.

In cases of poultry products, standard calculation of the drug is difficult to do. In this case, it is recommended to calculate the approximate mass of all birds and dissolve the required number of tablets in the water they should drink during the day.

But for more accurate calculations, consider a different dosage regimen.

From the type of animal and its disease

So, the dosage of the drug, depending on the animal and the type of disease:

  • For cattle, one tablet per 50 kg body weight. In such diseases as fascioliasis, discroseliosis and ostertagiosis - 1 tablet per 35 kg.
  • For sheep and goats 1 tablet per 70 kg body weight. In cases with the diseases indicated above, the dose is reduced to 1 tablet per 45 kg.
  • Horses - 1 tablet per 50 kg.
  • Pigs - 1 tablet per 35 kg.
  • Fur animals 1 tablet per 7 kg.
  • Poultry 1 tablet per 35 kg.
  • Cats - for 1 kg of weight accounts for 15 mg of the drug.

Personal preventive measures

When carrying out treatment and preventive measures it is important to follow the general rules of personal hygiene, as well as safety:

  1. Since the drug is administered orally, large animals need to put tablets on the inside of the tongue. It is necessary to observe safety precautions, as well as, whenever possible, calm and bind the animal before taking the drug.
  2. It is worth remembering that during the treatment can not smoke, drink and eat near an infected animal. This increases the risk of the person himself picking up parasites.
  3. At the end of the procedure, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water.

Summing up, I would like to say that the drug "Alben" is one of the best among its analogues, due to its versatility and the absence of side effects.
