Abstract:
The present article discusses the epidemiology of gastrointestinal parasitic infections in sheep and goats in aeolian plains of Haryana. Primarily the eggs of strongyle, Strongyloides sp. and Trichuris spp. were observed during faecal examination. The coproculture further elaborate the infection of Haemonchus contortus, Trichostrongylus, Oesophagostomum and Strongyloides sp. The study revealed higher prevalence of gastrointestinal parasites in goats than sheep. The difference in infection was significantly higher (p<0.01). Although, the animals were positive throughout the year but highest intensity of infection was observed during monsoon season. Higher prevalence was also observed in adult and male animals as compared to female and young animals. The detail about the morphology of adult worm, infective stage and their disease is discussed in the present paper.
