Pant University of Agriculture and Technology, Pantnagar-263145 (Uttarakhand), India. Abstract
A combination of Ivermectin (at 0.2 mg/kg body weight S/C) and Clorsulon (at 2 mg/kg body weight S/C) was tested against mixed infection of gastro-intestinal nematodosis, fasciolosis and amphistomosis in goat. The results of the present study revealed that the anthelmintic was effective in controlling gastrointestinal nematodosis and fasciolosis only. Key words: Ivermectin, clorsulon, fasciolosis, gastro-intestinal
fasciolosis and amphistomosis are the common respectively. The eggs were identified as per their parasitic diseases of ruminants including goats morphology described by Soulsby (1982). The throughout the country. These diseases are also widely distributed in goats of Uttarakhand which coproculture and the larvae were harvested and hamper livestock production in terms of poor used for larval identification as per the key of growth rate, reduction in carcass quality and also make them susceptible to other infectious diseases. Several drugs have been used to control theses Diagnosis
diseases under field conditions. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to evaluate the sample, animal was found positive for Fasciola efficacy of Ivermectin plus Clorsulon against gigantica (EPG-90), amphistome (EPG-20) and natural infection with gastrointestinal nematodes, mixed infection of strongyles (EPG-4900). The Fasciola gigantica and amphistome in a goat. revealed that the animal harbored mixed infections Case History

liver extract with multivitamins (Belamyl at 0.5ml I/M daily for 5 days) to compensate the hepatic goat was collected directly from rectum. The egg damage, loss of feeding and faster recovery of the per gram (EPG) of faeces was recorded on 0 day before treatment and on 3 and 7 days post treatment using sedimentation method (Soulsby, Results and Discussion
1982) and modified Mc Master Technique (MAFF, Veterinary Research International | July-September, 2013 | Vol 1 | Issue 1 | Pages 31-32 2013 Jakraya Publications (P) Ltd Kumar et al…. Ivermectin–Clorsulon combination against mixed helminthic infection in goat and Clorsulon showed hundred percent reduction % in faecal egg counts in Jamunapari goats in the EPG of Fasciola spp. and strongyles after 3 infected with G.I. nematode following treatment days post treatment (DPT) and the same was with Ivermectin on day 14 DPT. Flukicide activity observed on 7 DPT, but the EPG of amphistome of Clorsulon against mature Fasciola hepatica in remained the same. Improvement of the animal cattle has been also reported by Velarde et al. was observed 3 DPT and all the clinical signs (2001). Islam (2013) has also reported higher completely disappeared 5 DPT. The present efficacy of Ivermectin plus Clorsulon against findings indicates that the tested drug was Fasciola spp. and strongyles in cattle. Conclusion
reduction in EPG of Fasciola spp. and strongyles occured mainly due to the anthelmintic activity of suggested that the combined formulation of Clorsulon and Ivermectin, respectively. The Ivermectin and Clorsulon is highly effective and efficacy of Ivermectin against strongyles in goats may be used in controlling concurrent infection of has also been observed by Kumar et al. (2008). G.I. nematodosis and fasciolosis in small Godara et al. (2011) recorded a reduction of 98.11 References
