Morphogenesis of Trichostrongylus rugatus was examined in 16 sheep experimentally-infected with 120 000 third-stage larvae and killed 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16 and 20 days later (DAI). Third stage larvae moulted between Days 4 and 6, and fourth stage larvae moulted on Day 10 after infection. Four sheep first passed eggs in the faeces between Days 16 and 18 after infection. Rate of growth of larvae was constant between 2 and 10 DAI followed by a period of rapid growth from 10 to 16 DAI. Major… CONTINUE READING
