Abstract:

In this present study, a total of 930 goats with symptoms of gastrointestinal infection were examined for the presence of gastrointestinal helminths of which 801 (86.13%) were found to be positive. The different gastrointestinal helminths those were observed are Fasciola spp. and Paramphistomum spp. in trematodes; only Moniezia expansa and Moniezia benedeni in cestodes and among nematodes, Strongyloides spp., Trichostrongylus spp., Haemonchus spp., Trichuris spp., Oesophagostomum spp., Bunostomum spp., Ostertagia spp., Cooperia spp. and Marshallegia sp. Highly significant (P<0.01) relationships were recorded between season, age and sex wise variations with helminth prevalence. The present study provides the epidemiological pattern and risk factors associated with gastrointestinal helminth infection in goats in and around Ranchi, Jharkhand.
