Salicylanilides are very large group of compounds originally developed as fungicides for topical use and as antimicrobial agents in soaps which also possess potent anthelmintic activity. Closantel and rafoxanide are important anthelmintics used extensively to control Haemonchus spp. and Fasciola spp. infestation in ruminants in many parts of the world (Swan, 1999). Toxicity of Closantel has been reported in many species including dogs (McEntee, 1995), sheep and goat (Lunt and Venter, 2007) and in human (Tabatabaei et al., 2016). This paper presents Closantel intoxication with its clinical findings and outcome in sheep.
