WHAT THIS PRODUCT CURES
A liver fluke is an internal parasite which uses the snail as its intermediate host. Commonly found in wet land areas, the liver fluke causes the disease known as fasciolosis in cattle, swine, sheep, goats, and llamas. Fasciolosis is conducted in the early winter to autumn seasons. Livestock infected with this parasite will display aliments such as anemia, lethargy, diarrhea, weight loss, and death.
Sarcoptic mange is commonly known by the name canine scabies. Canine scabies is highly contagious mite Sarcoptes scabiei canis. Even though the common name is in fact ‘canine’ scabies, this mite also takes host of several other animals including cats, pigs, horses and several others. The damage these mites do to a host is devastating, digging into and through the skin causing highly intensified itching from the allergic reaction from the mite. A side from the basic scratching and biting the animal will do in order to relieve the itching; the skin also forms into crusts which quickly become infected. Hair loss and coruscations from the mites appear primarily on the elbows and ears of the creature, if not treated these mites will then spread out to the remainder of the body. A secondary infection of the skin is highly common and a state of poor nutrition.
Livestock infected with this parasite will display aliments such as anemia, lethargy, diarrhea, weight loss, and death. External parasite aliments include; hair loss, itching, and poor nutrition.
