Abstract
The study was conducted to investigate on gastrointestinal parasitic infections of Cattle in different areas of Sher-e-Bangla nagar, Dhaka, during the period from February, 2016 to January, 2017 using coproscopy examinations. A cross-sectional study was carried out to establish the prevalence and intensity of gastrointestinal parasites of cattle from Sher-e-banglanagar area, Dhaka. A total of 109 (different ages and sex) cattle faecal samples were examined using the differential sedimentation, Floatation and Stoll’s ova counting techniques. Overall, cattle showed a prevalence (41.2%) of parasite infections. Out of this percentage, 19.2% had multiple parasites while 13.8% had a single parasite infection and mean egg per gram of feces (EPG) was 516.4±222.6. The parasites identified on fecal examinations, Amphistomes (22.9%) was highest followed by Eimeria spp. (11.9%), Fasciolagigantica (10.1%), Oesophagostomum spp. (8.2%), Ostertagia spp. (6.4%), Monieziabenedini (5.5%), Cooperia spp. (4.6%) and Capillaria spp. (3.7%). In general, most of the animals had low intensity (<500 EPG / <10EPC) of infection. There was a wide range of nematode, cestode and protozoa egg counts (0-850 EPG, 0-900 EPG and 0-2100 OPG, respectively). The range of trematode eggs count was 0-13EPC. A wide variety of gastrointestinal parasites were prevalent among cattle in the study area.
