EFFICACY OF ANTHELMINTIC TREATMENT TO CONTROL HELMINTHIASIS IN SHEEP OF VETERINARY INSTITUTE

Nematode resistant to anthelmintics are of increasing concern to sheep farms in Malaysia. Thus to  certain the degree of anthelmintics in the sheep population, faecal egg count reduction (FECR) trials were conducted on sheep in Veterinary Institute. 60 wean sheep were selected and divided into 6 equivalent group. Group A was treated with ivermectin , Group B with Closantel , Group C with Fenbendazole, Group D with Levamisole , Group E with Cydectin and the remaining 10 were not treated. Faecal samples were collected from each sheep before treatment and  repeated  on day 14th, 30th,45th and 60th  post treatment. The worm egg count were done by using Mc Master’s method. The population of worm classified as resistant if the adjusted percent reduction was less than 90 %. It is concluded that only levamisole can be used for helminthiasis control. The result showed that worms at sheep unit was suspected  resistant to Ivermectin , Closantel and Cydectin. The worm was totally resistant to fenbendazole.The strongyle population is mainly made up of 80 % Haemonchus contortus and 20 % of species Oesophagostomum and Bunostomum.
