A restricted programme of strategic dosing with triclabendazole was used to treat a sheep flock with severe clinical fascioliasis. After five years the percentage of ewes passing fluke eggs was reduced from 49 per cent to less than 1 per cent, without the reappearance of clinical fascioliasis. It is suggested that this programme offers an efficient and practical means of controlling fascioliasis.
