Robenidine is an antibiotic used for the control of coccidiosis, a debilitating protozoal infection in poultry. Although there are alternative antibiotics available, robenidine is important in the management of antibiotic resistance as farmers rotate the use of robenidine with other antibiotics to try to preserve the effectiveness of these products in fighting infections.

Robenidine review

The APVMA reviewed the use of robenidine because of a lapse in the registration of the pioneer product containing robenidine.

In June 1998 the APVMA released the Robenidine Review Final Report. In the report the APVMA recommended setting Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) and poultry meat withholding periods for robenidine. Read a full history of the review.
