Gastrointestinal Parasitic Fauna of Camel (<I>Camelus dromedarius</I>) <br> Slaughtered at Faisalabad Abattoir
Abstract/OtherAbstract :
Camel guts (n=600) were examined to determine the gastrointestinal parasitic fauna. The overall prevalence was recorded as 69.1 (415/600) per cent. The prevalence of nematodes, cestodes and trematodes was 42.3, 22.5 and 4.3 per cent, respectively. The infected guts (n=415) had a mixed infection (32.5 %) of different species of nematodes viz., <I>Haemonchus contortus, Trichuris ovis, Trichuris globulosa, Trichostrongylus probolurus, camelostrongylus mentulatus, Ostertagia circumcincta, Chabertia ovina, Oesophagostomum venulosum and Cooperia onchophora.</I> The species of cestodes identified included <I>Moniezia expansa, Moniezia benedni, Stilesia globipunctata</I> and those of trematodes <I>Paramphistomum cervi, Carmyerious spatiosus </I>and <I>Gastrothylax crumenifer</I>. The coprological examination revealed three protozoan species i.e. <I>Eimeria cameli, Eimeria (Globidium) cameli</I> and <I>Eimeria dromedarii.</I>
