Albendazole in drench formulation was administered to calves 16 weeks after infection with 400 metacercariae of Fasciola hepatica. In separate experiments, albendazole at dose levels of 10 or 15 mg/kg reduced the fluke burden by 92.84 per cent and 95.0 per cent, respectively. In another experiment, a dose level of 7.5 mg/kg given once, twice with a two-week interval, or twice with a three-week interval reduced the mean fluke burden by 43.75 per cent, 72.29 per cent and 90 per cent, respectively.
