  • Abstract:

    An emulsion of tetrachlorethylene is described, which is effective against hookworms in sheep (Gaigeria and Bunostomum) and against Haemonchus, Trichostrongylus and Nematodirus. The emulsion does not cause coughing and choking when it is administered with reasonable care and does not produce giddiness since absorption is somewhat retarded. The factor of safety is relatively high.
