Abstract

The aim of this study was to examine the efficacy of moxidectin treatment on goats naturally infected with gastrointestinal nematodes in Van region, Turkey. Two hundred and forty goats infected with gasterointestinal parasites were treated with 0.2 mg kg-1 moxidectin (Cydectin, Abfar), subcutaneously. Ten randomly selected goats were not treated and allocated as a control group. Faecal samples were examined for gastrointestinal parasites qualitatively and quantitatively (EPG) in 0th, 7th and 14th days of treatment. Larvae of the parasite species of Ostertagia, Haemonchus, Nematodirus and Trichostrongylus were detected in the coprocultures of the infected animals performed before treatment. It was observed that moxidectin was 100% effective against the gastrointestinal nematodes.
