Abstract

A study was undertaken to determine the clinical prevalence of parasitic diseases in cattle at the Upazilla Veterinary Hospital (UVH), Sadar, Joypurhat district of Bangladesh during June, 2016 to July, 2017. According to the case record, a total of 3560 sick cattle were examined during this period. Disease diagnosis was made on the basis of owner’s statement, general examination, physical examination and clinical examination. Out of 3560 clinical caseof cattle, 681 (19.13%) cattle were infested with different ecto and endoparasites. According to the study the prevalence of tick infestation (5.48%) was highest followed by fascioliasis (2.98%), ascariasis (2.44%), paramphistomiasis (2.13%), maggot (1.71%), mite infestation (1.32%), schistosomiasis (1.24%), hump sore (1.18%) and haemonchiasis (0.65%) respectively. The sexwise prevalence of parasitic diseases in cattle was found more or less similar in male (19.0%) and female animals (19.26%). It was observed that there was no significant (P>0.05) variation in the prevalence of parasitic diseases in cattle in relation to age of the cattle and season of the year. The overall prevalence of parasitic diseases was found more in young (19.76%) than adult (18.59%) cattle. The overall prevalence of parasitic diseases was higher in winter season (20.10%) followed by rainy season (19.7%) and summer season (17.85%) respectively. This study will provide necessary information regarding parasitic diseases in cattle of Joypurhat Sadar for their effective control and better production of cattle which will be beneficial for poor farmer.
