Tapeworm control in sheep

Tapeworms of sheep are parasitic flatworms that live as adults within the small intestine. They grow up to 2m long and are formed of replicated segments that are detached when full of eggs. These segments appear like grains of rice in the faeces of infected animals.

When a tapeworm infection has been detected it may also be advised to check for a round worm infection via a worm egg count (WEC). If a WEC shows the presence of roundworms as well it is important that treatments for tapeworm containing Praziquantel are combined with an effective broad-spectrum drench. Abamectin, the broad-spectrum active in Genesis Tape, is a short-acting ML that is effective against sensitive strains of major production limiting roundworms, including both adult and immature stages. Abamectin is less likely to select for resistance than moxidectin1 based tapeworm drenches and will be generally more effective than levamisole based tapeworm drenches. Studies have shown abamectin may be more effective than levamisole based tapeworm drenches against Trichostrongylus and Teladorsagiaspecies.
