Care should be taken to avoid the following practices because they increase the risk of development of resistance and
could ultimately result in ineffective therapy:
- Too frequent and repeated use of anthelmintics from the same class, over an extended period of time.
- Underdosing which may be due to underestimation of bodyweight, misadministration of the product, or lack of
calibration of the dosing device.
Suspected clinical cases of resistance to anthelmintics should be further investigated using appropriate tests (e.g. Faecal
Egg Count Reduction Test). Where the results of the tests strongly suggest resistance to a particular anthelmintic, an
anthelmintic belonging to another pharmacological class and having a different mode of action should be used.
