Abstract:
The present study was carried out to find prevalence and chemotherapeutic management of gastrointestinal nematodes in captive wild carnivores of Kanan Pendari Zoo, Bilaspur (Chhattisgarh). Faecal samples (n=148) were collected aseptically from zoo enclosures of captive wild carnivores housed in zoo and subjected to examination by direct, sedimentation and floatation method followed by calculating eggs per grams by using McMaster slide. The findings of our study revealed prevalence of gastro-intestinal nematodes in captive wild carnivores was reported to be 29.05% (43/148). Amongst all species of nematodes observed in captive wild carnivores, Strongyle spp. was the most prevalent nematode (52.00%). Therapeutic efficacy of combination of fenbendazole along with praziquantel against concurrent infection of Ancylostoma spp. and Spirometra spp. in captive Royal Bengal Tiger was recorded to be 85.63% effective in eliminating gastrointestinal nematodes.
