Abstract: Post mortem examinations of 500 buffaloes were conducted at the slaughter house of Larkana. Out of 500 buffalos 122 (24.4%) were found to be infected with hydatidosis. The organ involvement was as 24.4% in liver, 15.4% in lungs and 13.0% mixed infection (liver and lungs simultaneously). The infection intensity was also recorded as 57.3% livers had slight, 30.3% had moderate and 12.2% had severe infections. In case of lungs 50.6% had slight, 36.3% had moderate and 12.9% had severe infections. The overall investigation showed occurrence of slight infection at the slaughter house of Larkana. The infection occurs through the dogs. Therefore it is suggested that the dogs should not be allowed in the slaughter houses and the cyst infected organs should not be offered to the dogs.
