Efficacy, toxicity and metabolism of imidocarb dipropionate in the treatment of Babesia ovis infection in sheep.


An intramuscular dose of 1.2 mg kg-1 of imidocarb dipropionate (IMDP) was effective in controlling fatal infections with Babesia ovis in sheep. The sheep were infected by the intravenous injection of sheep blood containing B ovis. A severe recrudescence of infection occurred in most sheep 10 to 14 days after therapy but this could be controlled by a second dose of 1.2 mg kg-1 IMDP. Studies on the toxicology, residues and metabolism of IMDP showed this to be a safe dosage regimen. Transient or mild signs of toxicity were seen at 2.4 and 4.8 mg kg-1 IMDP. Severe toxicity was observed in sheep treated with 9.6 mg kg-1.
