Clinical parasitism occurs less frequently in goats, however, the parasites of the stomach and intestine could lead to scouring, dehydration, anemia, depression and eventually death. The incidence of gastro-intestinal helminthic and protozoan parasites was identified by coprological survey made in diarrhoeic goats brought to the Teaching Veterinary Clinical Complex (TVCC), Veterinary College and Research Institute, Namakkal. The study revealed the incidence of gastrointestinal parasites predominantly by Eimeria spp. and Strongylus spp. followed by Moniezia spp., Strongyloides spp., and Trichuris spp. Mixed infections were found for all the above parasites, predominantly with Strongylus and Eimeria. Prevalence of gastrointestinal parasitism was high in male and in less than 2 months old kids.
