Fasinex™ 240 is an oral flukicide for the treatment and control of triclabendazole-sensitive strains of Fasciola hepatica (liver fluke) in cattle. The active ingredient in Fasinex™ is triclabendazole, which has unique efficacy against early immature, immature and mature stages of liver fluke.
The efficacy of Fasinex™ against all three stages of liver fluke means it is effective against both acute and chronic infestations, accelerating the recovery of health and productivity. It is also very useful for strategic control of liver fluke in pastures.
