Abstract:

A total of 60 animals which include thirty sheep and 30 goats of Charkhi Dadri district, Haryana with egg per gram of more than or equal to 150 were divided into four groups i.e. G1, G2 of goats and S1, S2 of sheep, each of 15 animals. G1 and S1 was dosed with ivermectin, recommended dose in sheep and double dose in goats. Group G2 and S2 served as untreated control. Faecal egg count on day of treatment (0 day) and 14th day post treatment were determined by the modified McMaster technique. Results revealed that ivermectin in sheep reduced the faecal egg counts by 87.85% with upper and lower confidence levels as 94.99% and 70.51%, respectively indicating moderate resistance. In goats, ivermectin reduced the faecal egg count by 99.58% with upper and lower confidence levels as 99.90% and 98.22%, respectively indicating susceptibility. The post-treatment coproculture showed larvae of Haemonchus contortus and Strongyloides sp. Thus, the present study revealed presence of moderate anthelmintic resistance in sheep while effective in goats to ivermectin in unorganized sector in Charkhi Dadri district of Haryana.
