A total of 6141 foxes (Vulpes vulpes) were examined for infection with Trichinella. The foxes were killed in Denmark during the hunting season 1995-1996 and 1997-1998; 3133 and 3008, respectively. Foxes included in the investigation came from throughout the country with the exception of the island of Bornholm. The right foreleg from each fox was submitted(More)
The occurrence of anthelmintic resistance in 15 goat herds in Denmark was investigated using the faecal egg count reduction test (FECRT), egg hatch assay (EHA) for thiabendazole (TBZ) and a microlarval development assay (LDA) for TBZ, levamisole (LEV) and ivermectin (IVM). Resistance to both benzimidazole (BZ) and levamisole (LEV) anthelmintics was detected(More)
A questionnaire survey was undertaken on sheep farms in Denmark to obtain information on sheep management and worm control practices. The questionnaires were inserted in the June and July, 1993 issue of the Danish Sheep Breeders Journal, circulated monthly to approximately 1200 sheep breeders nationwide. A total of 183 (11%) questionnaires were returned. A(More)
Efficacies of ivermectin against larval stages and adult males and females of Oesophagostomum dentatum were investigated in two slaughter assays. In Experiment A, 20 pigs were each infected with 6000 third-stage larvae on Day 0 and Day 24. Pigs were ivermectin treated on Day 28 at dose rates of 0, 75, 150, and 300 micrograms kg-1 bodyweight (bw) and(More)
To define prepatent periods of different Oesophagostomum spp. isolates we carried out two separate experiments, one using two monospecific laboratory isolates and another using laboratory isolates as well as isolates obtained from pig herds having different management systems and with different anthelmintic treatment histories. Pigs were inoculated with(More)
An experiment was carried out to investigate the anthelmintic activity of papaya latex (Carica papaya) against natural infection of Ascaris suum in pigs. Sixteen naturally infected pigs were, on the basis of faecal egg counts and body weight, allocated into four groups, each of four pigs. Three groups (groups B, C, and D) were given papaya latex per os at(More)
Two strains of Oesophagostomum spp., consisting of both O. quadrispinulatum and O. dentatum, were subjected to a controlled in vivo assay for resistance to levamisole and pyrantel by comparison with susceptible isolates. One strain (LEM) was recently isolated from a commercial herd, where sows showed high numbers of strongyle eggs in faeces within 2 weeks(More)
This paper describes the worm populations in pigs experimentally infected by trickle infections with different dose levels of the nodular worm, Oesophagostomum dentatum. Four groups each of 20 helminth naïve pigs, 10-12 weeks old, were inoculated with 0 (group 1), 100 (group 2), 1000 (group 3), or 10,000 (group 4) infective larvae twice weekly, and the pigs(More)
This study reports on the prevalence of anthelmintic resistance in strongyles of horses in Denmark. Of 5 methods used for the calculation of faecal egg count reduction (FECR) the method recommended by the World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology, for the detection of resistance in sheep was the most sensitive procedure for detecting(More)
Four groups each of 3 pigs were inoculated with Ascaris suum eggs. Pigs in groups 1 and 3 were inoculated with 1000 eggs, and pigs in groups 2 and 4 with 10,000 eggs. On day 10 and 21 post-inoculation (p.i.), respectively, groups 1 + 2 and 3 + 4 were slaughtered, and the contents from the small intestines collected. The contents were mixed with agar to a(More)
