Rafoxanide(Cat No.:I002733) is a salicylanilide compound that exhibits antiparasitic activity against a variety of internal parasites, particularly in veterinary medicine. It is commonly used to treat infections caused by gastrointestinal nematodes and trematodes in animals. Rafoxanide works by interfering with the energy metabolism of the parasites, leading to their paralysis and eventual death.
