Check this site (http://www.laprovet.fr/page1en.html) from a French
pharmaceutical company which produces EB for
using as medicine against trypanosomosis in cattle by  intramuscular
injection of 1mg/kg. And it seems that the cattle is used for meat and milk
production.
I also found recent articles from several authors (just put "homidium
veterinary" in pubmed and you find them) defending the use of EB in animals
tropical areas against protozoan infection without refering the hazards of
manipulating  it.
