A trial was carried out to assess the efficacy of a nitrophenylguanidine compound, netobimin against Dicrocoelium dendriticum in naturally infected sheep. At a dose rate of 20 mg/kg bodyweight administered orally the drug was highly effective, producing a mean reduction of 98.9 per cent in the fluke burdens of treated animals compared with untreated controls. No side effects were observed in the treated sheep.
