Abstract:
Efficacy of commonly used anthelmintics viz. Fenbendazole, Doramectin and Piperazine against toxocarosis in buffalo calved were comparatively evaluated by monitoring the faecal egg count in naturally infected calves before treatment and after treatment with these anthelmintics. For the study 48 naturally infected claves were group into 4 groups in which standard doses of fenbendazole, piperazine and doramectin were given and toxocara eggs per gram of feces were estimated by following Modified Stoll’s dilution method. It was observed that all three drugs are effective in reducing the worms and eggs count from faeces however their comparative efficacy was found at par with each other with no significant differences.
