Albendazole is rapidly absorbed and distributed in all organs and tissues, causing the lysis of the worms regardless of the species or categories of treated animals and of the location of parasites (respiratory or digestive tract, liver or other tissues). It is active against all of the developmental stages (eggs, larvae, adults) of flukes, tapeworms and roundworms.
The toxicity is relatively low; maximal admissible doses are 5 times higher than the therapeutic doses.
It is also active against some benzimidazole-resistant species of Haemonchus şi Trichostrongylus.

- kills and eliminates the gastrointestinal and pulmonary helminthes during all the development stages (egg, larvae, adult);
- kills the migrating and the cystic parasites from different tissues.
