Summary

Routine treatment with allopathic medicines is not allowed with the exception of endemic parasitism. The application of anthelmintics requires faecal egg counts. (DI production standards, 5.8. Medical treatment of animals)

Difference

The DI standard contains further requirements. EU Regulation 2092/91 does not require faecal egg counts before anthelmintic use.

Justification

Natural remedies are preferred. They often have an harmonizing effect and are supporting the self-healing process of the organism. A further reason is to avoid contamination with objectionable substances.
