  In Indonesia, pigeon is one who is familiar with humans, beside can be consumed, usually maintained for hobby or pleasure. One of the parasitic worms that infect the pigeon's kidneys was Paratanaisia bragai (P. bragai). That worm can cause pathological changes in the renal pigeons. Evaluation of renal function can be done through checking of serum creatinine and urea. This study was conducted to identify the renal parasite and its blood urea-creatinine profile on the Indonesian indigenous pigeons. Fifty eight Indonesian indigenous pigeons were identified for renal parasite. Then all of the collected blood was evaluated for urea and creatinine levels. The difference values of urea and creatinine between infected and uninfected renal pigeon were analyzed by t-test. Fifty one percent (30/58) of them were infected by renal parasite. Identification of renal parasite showed the P. bragai. The creatinine levels in infected pigeons (2.650±1.7228) mg/dL were significantly higher than uninfected pigeons (1.732±1.2944) mg/dL. The blood urea levels showed non significant difference between the infected pigeons (7.7700±3.09775) mg/dL and the uninfected pigeons (6.4364±3.60415) mg/dL. The increase of urea and creatinine levels might be not correlated with the number of worms, since the Pearson correlation test showed no significant results. These results will be better if accompanied by histopathology of kidney, uric acid levels and other blood components.

  This study was conducted to identify the type of Acanthocephala that invaded in the small intestine of laying hens based on morphological examination with Semichon’s Carmine staining. A total of 157 laying hens aged over 50 weeks were used. Worms were collected from the intestine, stored in distilled water at 4°C for 2 days and then stained by Semichon’s Carmine for worm identification. Nineteen laying hens (12%) were infected by worms and 187 Acanthocephala were collected from posterior part of the small intestine. Morphological observation and measurement of worms were the proboscis, trunk, genital system and eggs. The identified Acanthocephala were creamy white without pseudo segmentation, proboscis shaped like a pear with hooks, spines and divided into anterior and posterior parts. The number of hooks on the anterior proboscis were 18-22 rows, each contains 5 hooks, long cylindrical trunk and tapered at both ends. The trunk had no spine with two long Lemniscus and it was not tied. The reproductive system of male worms comprised of testis, cement glands, vesicles gland and bursa of copulatory. The reproductive system of female worms comprised of the uterus and vagina. Eggs were oval shape with 3 layers of walls and contain embryos. Based on morphological examination of Acanthocephala worms, it was concluded that the species was Mediorhynchus gallinarum.
