Abstract:

This study was conducted to compare the efficacy of closantel, an anthelmintic drug and neem plant diet (Azadirachta indica) against trichostrongylid nematode parasites of goats. Fecal egg counts (FEC) using modified McMaster and prevalence of nematode species in goats were investigated. Results indicated that the Fecal Egg Count Reduction Test (FECRT) for closantel was low, with approximately 29.22%, while FECRT for neem (A. indica) was lower than closantel at 4.25%. Both treated groups had no significant difference to the control group at P<0.05. Larval cultures of fecal samples revealed that Haemonchus spp. was the predominant species infecting the goats.
