Abstract: Under the conditions of large-scale animal husbandry, effective control of parasitic diseases can only be expected from prophylactic measures. Chemical prophylaxis can most effectivelly be achived by inclusion of subtherapeutic doses of drugs, active against both mature and immature parasites, into the food or drinking water. Such a continuous medication prevents the establishment of the parasites in the host and the “build-up” of worm eggs, cysts, etc. on the soil, and the animals are enabled to achieve their full potential. Two drugs were analyzed for their prophylactic and therapeutic value in various diseases: Furidine in caecal coccidiosis, fowl typhoid, ascaridiosis of poultry and ascaridosis of swine, and Rodanine in ascaridiosis of the poultry and swine ascaridosis. The author points out that in view of the many unsuccesful attempts to reduce the economic losses due to parasitic diseases, extensive work should be undertaken to determine the prophylactic value and the principles of preventive application of various drugs.
