Resumen

The effects of Albendazole and Triclabendazole on 12 adult Pelibuey ovines infected by Fasciola hepatica in the province of Camagüey, Cuba, were evaluated. A reduction and fecal egg count test was performed. Two groups of animals were made for critical study. On day 0 (D0), the animals in group 1 were given Albendazole orally, and group 2 received Triclabendazole. The fecal samples were collected (rectal) on days 0 (D0), 14 (D14), and 28 (D28), after treatment. The McMaster technique was used for F. hepatica egg count using a ZnCl 2 solution (1.5 g/ml), at 10 eggs per stool gram. The groupʼs mean results first, and the egg reduction per cent later, were calculated. On D14, 98.17 % egg reduction was observed in group 1, and 79.58 % in group 2. However, on D28, group 1 underwent 33 % reduction, whereas group 2 experienced 90.39 %. The treatment using Triclabendozole was more effective for F. hepatica.
