Abstract:

An adult female goat was presented for the post-mortem examination to the Department of Veterinary Pathology, College of Veterinary Science & A.H., Anjora, Durg, Chhattisgarh. The animal had emaciated body, pale mucous membranes with the history of anorexia and loss of body weight. Upon necropsy, the internal organs were found extremely pale, which was suggestive of anaemia. Liver of the animal was hemorrhagic and enlarged. Abomasum of the animal was found filled with the blood-sucking parasites Haemonchus contortus spp. and severe abomasitis was observed. Fecal sample collected for microscopic examination revealed 1150 egg per gram indicating severe parasitic infestation.
