Prevalence of Gastro-intestinal parasites in sheep and goats slaughtered at Lahore abattoir



Punjab University Journal of Zoology 13: 123-126



The prevalence of Gastro-intestinal parasites of both sheep and goats brought for slaughtering at Lahore abattoir was studied. The overall prevalence was recorded to be 92.35% including 28.13% infected with one species while 64.22% infected with more than one species of parasites. During this study Haemonchus contortus (39.41%), Trichostrongylus spp. (22.94%) and Fasciola hepatica (14.11%) were found major parasites in these animals. The effect on various blood parameters showed a decrease in total leukocytic count, haemoglobin level and increase in erythrocyte sedimentation rate values in infected sheep and goats.
