Faecal survey of ova/oocysts of gastrointestinal parasites of ruminants on the University of Maiduguri research farm was conducted between January and November 2006 using saturated sodium chloride floatation and formol ether sedimentation techniques. A prevalence rate of 47.0%, 54.0% and 58.0% was obtained for cattle, sheep and goats respectively (p>0.05).The younger ruminants were more infected (cattle: 50.0%; sheep: 54.7%.; and goats: 58.1%) compared to the older ruminants (cattle: 44.0…

Gastrointestinal parasites of bile and faeces of slaughtered cattle and sheep from Maiduguri Municipal Abattoir, North Eastern Nigeria

The recovery of parasites of economic and public health significance such as Fasciola spp, Toxocara vitulorum and Strongyloides papillosus indicates that they are abundant and that attention need to be given to their control under ruminant production system.

A faecal survey of Gastro-intestinal Parasites in Sheep and goats in Madagali Local Government Area, Adamawa State, Nigeria

The number of species infected and at risk with gastrointestinal parasites has been increasing over some years resulting to loss of many ruminants, the study was conducted between January to December

Epidemiological studies of gastrointestinal parasitic infections in ruminants in Jakiri, Bui Division, North West Region of Cameroon

The prevalence, intensity of infection and management systems associated with gastrointestinal (GIT) parasites in grazing ruminants (cattle, sheep and goats) and the various management techniques provided information that will help farmers practice the right traditional management techniques.

An epidemiological study to investigate the prevalence of gastrointestinal parasites of small ruminants from different areas of Madhupur, Tangail found that animals with poor body conditions were mostly affected compared to those with moderate and good body conditions.

Prevalence of parasitic gastrointestinal nematodes of small ruminants at Jalingo abattoir, Taraba state, Nigeria

Results show that parasitic gastrointestinal nematode was prevalent in both sheep and goats at Jalingo abattoir and all the parasite eggs detected were strongyle type.

Prevalence of gastrointestinal helminths in pastoral sheep and goat flocks in the Cholistan desert of Pakistan.

Seasonal changes in nematode faecal egg counts of sheep in Ethiopia

Faecal egg counts reflect nematode transmission levels in host populations and the recent level of infective larval population on pastures and suggest that strategic treatment of sheep with anthelmintics in June and January is most likely to reduce the shedding of ova at critical periods and minimise transmission levels during the rainy seasons.
