M. Anwar and C.S. Hayat    

Abstract: Camel guts (n =600) were examined to determine the gastrointestinal parasitic fauna. The overall prevalence was recorded as 69.1 (415/600) percent. The prevalence of nematodes, cestodes and trematodes was 42.3, 22.5 and 4.3 percent, respectively. The infected guts (n = 415) had a mixed infection (32.5%) of different species of nematodes viz., Haemonchus contortus, Trichuris ovis, Trichuris globulosa, Trichostrongylus probolurus, Camelostrongylus mentulatus, Ostertagia circumcincta, Chabertia ovine, Oesophagostomum venulosum and Cooperia onchophora. The species of cestodes identified included Moniezia expansa, Moniezia benedni, Stilesia globipunctata and those of trematodes Paramphistomum cervi, Carmyerious spatiosus and Gastrothylax crumenifer, The coprological examination revealed three protozoan species i.e. Eimena cameli, Eimena (Globidium) cameli and Eimeria clromedani.
