Blood and faecal samples were analysed in a study to evaluate the use of ivermectin in red deer hinds (Cervus elaphus elaphus). It was demonstrated that ivermectin, when used at 400 micrograms/kg bodyweight, proved to be more efficient than 200 micrograms/kg bodyweight although positive worm egg counts together with the isolation of lungworm (Dictyocaulus species) larvae were recorded from hinds having received the anthelmintic at the higher dose.
