In this picture, the buffalo is being dosed with a liver fluke drug. Treatment should be carried out every six months, otherwise the buffalo’s growth slows down as a result of infestation by the fluke parasite. In addition, buffaloes infested with scabies are injected to treat the scabies, and the injection also acts as a dewormer. Now that I have received training on biosecurity from the Li-chăn project, I deworm the cattle twice a year.
