Abstract:

The study was conducted at Department of Veterinary Clinical Medicine, Ethics and Jurisprudence. The polyherbal tablet comprising Artimisia maritima, Butea frondosa, Vernonia anthelmintica and Holarrhena antidysentrica was prepared and its anthelmintic efficacy and effect on body weight was studied on goats naturally infected with Haemonchus contortus. Total 140 goats were selected which were naturally infected with Haemonchus contortus. Out of 140 goats, 100 goats were selected as Group I (Polyherbal Treatment), 20 goats were selected as Group II (Positive control) and 20 goats were selected as Group III (Negative control), respectively. For the positive control albendazole (10 mg/kg BW) was given to the control group goats and in negative control goats maintained untreated. Group I animals were given polyherbal polymer complex anthelmintic and Group II animals were given albendazole. The faecal samples were examined on 0th day before and 3rd, 7th, 15th and 30th day post treatment. Body weights of goats under treatment were recorded on day 0 i.e. before treatment and on 15th and 30th day post treatment. There was significant reduction in Egg per Gram (EPG) count seen in Group I and Group II, whereas, the EPG count increased significantly in Group III. Increase in body weight was observed significantly in Group I and Group II whereas, there was decrease in body weight observed in Group III. Further it was concluded that the polyherbal anthelmintic tablet was effective in elimination of Haemonchus contortus which could be the reason for increase in body weight during the trial.
