Small Ruminants Haemonchosis : Prevalence and Associated Risk Factors in Arsi Negelle Municipal Abattoir , Ethiopia

  title={Small Ruminants Haemonchosis : Prevalence and Associated Risk Factors in Arsi Negelle Municipal Abattoir , Ethiopia},
  author={Tibeso Badaso and Mekonnen Addis},
Haemonchus contortus (H.contortus), also known as the barber's pole worm, is very common parasite and one of the most pathogenic nematodes of ruminants. A cross sectional study was performed to determine the prevalence and associated risk factors of haemonchosis in sheep and goats slaughtered in Arsi Negelle municipal abattoir, Oromia region, Southeast Ethiopia from December 2014 to March 2015. Post mortem examination of the abomasum of sheep and goats were carried out according to standard…

Prevalence of Haemonchosis and Associated Risk Factors in Small Ruminants Slaughtered at Bishoftu ELFORA Export Abattoir, Ethiopia

As high rate of infection with H. contortus observed in small ruminants slaughtered in the study abattoir, appropriate control measure should be instituted in area of animals’ origin to reduce further infection.

Prevalence of Haemonchus contortus Infections in Sheep and Goats in Nyagatare District, Rwanda

It was apparent that young female goats were at greater risk of H. contortus infection than young male goats, and targeted selective treatment using FAMACHA with emphasis on low-lying swampy pastures and appropriate anthelmintic drugs may be the most economically viable solution in the short term.

Prevalence of Gastrointestinal Parasitic Infections of Sheep and Goats in Bui and Donga-Mantung Divisions of the North West Region of Cameroon

Background: This study was carried out to determine the prevalence, intensity of infection and management systems associated with gastrointestinal parasite infections in sheep and goats from 12

Features of seasonal dynamics of sheep Haemonchosis in the territory of Zaporizhzhya region

The conducted researches illuminate the current epizootic condition of sheep haemorrhage in the territory of Zaporizhzhya region, expand and supplement the already existing data that will allow to increase the effectiveness of the use of therapeutic and preventive measures in this invasion.

The current study revealed the highest prevalence of GIN in the study area, which needs strategic control, needs to enhance community awareness toward GIN control and prevention, and to implement further investigation into anthelminthic efficacy to solve the problem.

Edinburgh Explorer Prevalence and risk factors of gastrointestinal parasitic infections in goats in low-input low-output farming systems in Zimbabwe

Knowledge concerning gastrointestinal helminth biology and epidemiological infection patterns caused by these parasites is essential in the development of appropriate control strategies and this has a potential to reduce production losses.

Factors influencing regional epidemiology of strongyle nematodes at organized sheep farms in Rajasthan

A marked influence of agro-climatic region on epidemiology and dynamics of strongyle nematodes in sheep flocks and on pasture is suggested to suggest anthelmintics intervention through targeted selective approach instead of strategic en-mass drench.

Physio-biochemical parameters: a potential tool for target-selective treatment of haemonchosis in the small ruminants

This study aims to evaluate the conjunctiva colour-based FAMACHA score (FS) coupled with a body condition score (BCS), haemogram and stressor hormone level estimation, in identifying post-mortem

Prevalence and resistance to gastrointestinal parasites in goats: A review

Future statistical and biological models should investigate genetic variations within genomic regions and different candidate genes involved in immunoregulatory mechanisms, as well as the identification of single nucleotide polymorphisms known to affect GIP infection levels.
