Abstract

A comparative efficacy of piperazine, albendazole and ivermectin against natural infection of
Toxocara vitulorum based on faecal egg count in calves was studied. Early recovery was found
with piperazine than with either albendazole or ivermectin. However, all the three drugs were
effective against ascariasis in cattle calves
