Abstract:

Before perform any parasitological examination, a pre-requisite questionnaire was used to collect data from the 100 livestock holder of district Budgam, Jammu and Kashmir to evaluate the knowledge about the use of anthelmintic against worm infestation in ruminants. The study revealed that 83.00 % respondent was aware of deworming and 92.00% respondent unaware of purpose of faecal examination of their livestock. Hence, a total of 537 faecal samples comprising of 159 (cattle), 133 (sheep) and 245(goat) was collected randomly from 5 no. of villages of the study areas to record the occurrence of gastrointestinal nematodes. The coprological examination revealed overall occurrence of gastrointestinal nematodes was found to be 81.13, 84.96 and 88.98 per cent in cattle, sheep and goats, respectively. Haemonchus sp. was common in cattle (30.18%) and sheep (30.82%), but in case of goat it was Trichostrongylus sp. (24.08%). The other parasites were found to be Oesophagostomum, Cooperia, Bunostomum and Trichuris. When administered ivermectin (Inj. Ivomec) @ 200 µg/ kg BW subcutaneously, Ivermectin bolus (Endectin) @ 200 µg/ kg BW orally, Albendazole suspensions (Albomar) @ 7.5mg/kg BW orally and Fenbendazole (Fentas Bolus) @7.5mg per Kg BW orally the faecal egg count reduction per cent (FECR%) was found to be in sheep 98.86+1.04, 97.70+1.42, 80.72+2.18, 85.71+5.04; in goats 96.39+1.52, 97.56+1.94, 86.05+3.82 and 85.06+4.52 and in cattle 88.37+5.23, 90.00+8.75, 79.59+6.67 and 76.60+8.56 in group A, B, C and D, respectively on 14th day of post-treatment.
