VETKOXAN ORAL is a combination of levamisole and oxyclozanide and is a broad spectrum anthelmintic as well as a fasciolicide active against most mature and immature stages of roundworms, lungworms nematodes, flukes (platyhelminths) and Fasciola spp in cattle, sheep and goats. Levamisole acts against both adult and larval stages of gastro-intestinal worms and lungworms. It causes paralysis of the worms and acts rapidly. Oxyclozanide is active against the adult liver fluke by affecting the energy metabolism of the worm.
VETKOXAN ORAL is effective in the treatment of endoparasitic infections in cattle, calves, sheep and goats caused by parasites susceptible to levamisole or oxyclozanide like Bunostomum spp., Chabertia spp., Cooperia spp., Dictyocaulus spp. (lungworm), Fasciola spp., Haemonchus spp., Nematodirus spp., Oesophagostomum spp., Trichostrongylus and Ostertagia spp. (both immature and adult Ostertagia but not inhibited larvae in cattle. In sheep it is usually effective against inhibited larvae of Ostertagia, Haemonchus and Trichostrongylus axei).
Hypersensitivity to levamisole or oxyclozanide. Do not use in animals in lactation if milk is intended for human consumption. Do not administer to animals with an impaired liver function.
At the recommended dose levamisole rarely cause side effects. At higher doses transient symptoms may appear, these include head shaking, salivation, sweating, coughing, hyperpnea, vomiting, colic spasms and slight muscle tremors. These are more likely to occur in cattle than in sheep. Oxyclozanide can cause slight softening of the feces in cattle with sometimes increased frequency of defecation and transient inappetence.
