Parasitological Aspects of Pollution Levels in Some Equine Digestive Helminthosis
Keywords:coproscopy, extent, incidence, helminthosis
Research conducted on the parasitological pollution in some digestive helminthosis in horses, (parascaridiosis, strongillidosis and oxyuriasis), made in January 2011 in the village of Crasna, Salaj county on a herd of 72 horses from households (40 adults and 32 young horses), using diagnostic methods ovohelmintoscopics with enrichment of faeces taken (method Willis) and the scaling technique of curettage in anal pit area, revealed a different incidence of the main digestive helmintoze studied in correlation with age category and area of origin of the samples. Thus, mean parascaridiosis values are of 12.5% in adults and of 34.0% in young horses and riding in strongillidosis to an average of 82.5% in adult horses and, respectively, to 34.5% in young horses. In exchange for pinworm infection extensivity of parasitism in adult horses is 18.0% and respectively, 15.0% in young horses. Linked to the intensity of parasitism in helmintosis taken in study, the data obtained reveals different levels of pollution coproparasitologic Eggtester, in correlation with the area of origin and age. Thus, adult and youth horse parascaridiosis, dominates the low and medium infestations (100%) and in adult horses strongilidosis dominate the medium infestations (84.0%) and low infestations (75%) in young horses.
