  author={Mebrie Zemen and Basaznew Bogale and Samuel Derso and Asmelash Tassew},
A cross-sectional study was conducted from October 2014 to April 2015 at Hashim Nur’s export abattoir to determine the prevalence, cyst viability and organ distribution and economic significance of small ruminant hydatidosis. 397 small ruminants comprising 209 sheep and 188 goats were examined. Post mortem inspection following standard procedures, cyst characterization and economic loss estimations were conducted. 49 (12.3%) small ruminants were harboring a single or multiple hydatid cysts…

Occurrence and financial loss assessment of cystic echinococcosis (hydatidosis) in cattle slaughtered at Wolayita Sodo municipal abattoir, Southern Ethiopia

There seems to be an existing socioeconomic situation favorable for hydatidosis, and hence, it remains one of the most important diseases warranting serious attention for prevention and control actions in Wolayita zone and establishment of well-equipped standardized abattoirs, creation of public awareness, and control of stray dogs are of paramount importance.

Occurrence and fertility rates of hydatid cysts in sheep and goats slaughtered at Modjo Luna Export Slaughter House, Ethiopia.

In Ethiopia, to break the life cycle of echinococcosis/hydatidosis, public education on habit of feeding condemned organs to dogs should be undertaken and the prevalence was high in sheep compared to goats although the difference was not statistically significant.
