In the present investigation, total 21 faecal samples of adult horses of either sex were examined for presence of parasitic ova. Out of which, 12 faecal samples were found positive for mixed and single infection of Strongylus spp. and Parascaris spp. The haematological study revealed significant decreased in Hb, PCV, TEC and lymphocytes, whereas increased in TLC, neutrophils, monocytes and eosinophils in nematode infected horses. Erythrocyte indices revealed normocytic normochromic anemia in GI nematode infected horses. Biochemical study revealed decreased in blood glucose, total serum protein, serum albumin and increased in globulin level in nematode infected horses.
