A total of 3456 faecal samples of equines brought to the mobile clinic of the department of clinical medicine and surgery, University of Agriculture, Faisalabad, screened for gastrointestinal tract (GIT) parasitism using standard protocols. Information regarding possible risk factors was also collected with clinical observations on a predesigned questionnaire. A total of 45.1% (1562/3456) equines were recorded positive for GIT parasites in the study population. Younger, thinner, females… Expand
