Abstract: Little information is available about prevalence of helminthes in pigs in Hunan Province. In the present study, the prevalence of helminths in adult pigs was investigated in Hunan Province, People’s Republic of China between 2009 and 2012. A total of 690 pigs slaughtered in local abattoirs from ten representative administrative regions in Hunan Province were examined for the presence of helminths using traditional helminthological approach. The worms were examined, counted and identified to species according to existing keys and descriptions. A total of eight species of helminths were found in pigs which represent three classes. The results of the present investigation have important implications for the control of helminth infections in pigs in Hunan Province, China.
