Abstract:
During the present study, a total of 400 buffalo faecal samples was collected from four blocks (Hisar-1, Hisar-2, Adampur and Agroha) of Hisar district, Haryana along with their age and sex to know the prevalence of gastrointestinal (GI) parasitic infection. Samples were examined using floatation and sedimentation techniques and data generated was statistically analyzed using IBM SPSS software (version 20). A total of 329 (82.25%) samples were infected with one or more species of GI parasites. In positive cases, Eimeria spp. (56.25%) was the most prevalent followed by Strongyloides spp. 30%, strongyles 26.75%, Moniezia spp. 6% and Trichuris spp. 5.57%. Age-wise prevalence of Eimeria spp. 42% was found higher (p<0.01) in animals below six months of age, however, higher (p<0.01) prevalence of Strongyloides spp. 20% and strongyles 17.25% was recorded in animals above 6 months. Sex wise prevalence of Eimeria spp. 45.75% was found higher (p<0.01) in females as compared to males. Strongyloides, strongyles, Moniezia and Trichuris spp. were also recoded higher in female but not significant (p>0.05).
