  title={Small Ruminant Haemonchosis: Prevalence and Associated Determinants in Randomly Selected Restaurants and Hotels of Gondar Town, Ethiopia},
  author={Tewodros Fentahun and Girja Luke},
A cross sectional study was performed with an attempt to determine the prevalence and associated risk factors of haemonchosis in randomly selected slaughtered sheep and goats in restaurants and hotels in Gondar town, Amhara region, northwest Ethiopia from November 2011 to April 2012. A total of 384 animals (335 sheep and 49 goats) were examined. Overall prevalence was 80.21%. The specific prevalence of Haemonchus. contortus infection was 81.2% and 73.5% in sheep and goats respectively. The…

Evaluation of anthelmintic activity of Nigerian ethnoveterinary plants; Cassia occidentalis and Guiera senegalensis.

Control of gastrointestinal nematodes, particularly in ruminants over the past 3 decades has been carried out almost entirely using conventional anthelmintic drugs, which are mainly considered to be the only effective way of controlling helminthosis in livestock.



Influence of sex on the resistance of sheep lambs to an experimental Haemonchus contortus infection.

The results suggest that female lambs are more resistant against an experimental H. contortus infection when compared with male lambs, and testosterone seems to play an important role in resistance.

The faecal egg count reduction test on the studied goats of the two herds revealed a reduction of the egg-excretion after the eprinomectin-treatment of 17.4% and 27.5%, which clearly confirms the occurrence of anthelmintic resistance against epr in these two herds.
