Abstract:  In this case report, some colobus monkeys at the Audubon Zoo had been diagnosed with chronic whipworm, but zoo staff could not accurately dose them because of the delivery method they were using (painting the drug on leafy food). Instead the fenbendazole was mixed with pureed fresh apple and injected into apples the monkeys snacked on each afternoon. Each monkey was given the proper prescription strength of fenbendazole in the apples, which they promptly ate. The infestation had cleared up approximately three to four weeks later when the next fecal samples were taken.
