  Background: Black Bengal goat is very popular in Bangladesh and parasitism is considered as most vital limitation of livestock production. Twenty black Bengal goats of 12-13 month old irrespective of sex infested with gastrointestinal nematodes were selected for this experiment and randomly divided into four equal groups (group A, B, C and D) where each group consisted of 5 goats and goats of group D were kept as control group. Objective: The present investigation was aimed to evaluate the comparative efficacy of modern anthelmintics like albendazole (group A), ivermectin (group B) and fenbendazole (group C) against gastrointestinal nematodiasis in goats regarding their effects on body weight and haematological indices. Results: After treatment with albendazole, ivermectin and fenbendazole, Total Erythrocyte Count (TEC), Hemoglobin (Hb) content and Packed Cell Volume (PCV) were increased significantly (p>0.05 and p<0.01) in goats but decreased significantly (p<0.01) in untreated control goats. Unlikely, Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) were increased significantly (p>0.05) in untreated control group and decreased in treated group. On the other hand, Total Leukocyte Count (TLC) was decreased in all treated goat and body weight was increased significantly (p<0.01). In this experiments, the live weight gain of goats in group A, B and C recorded at ‘0’ days and at 28 days and the percentage of improvement of body weight gain in kilogram were 6.81, 5.76 and 10.97%, respectively and in control group it was reduced by 0.44%. So, it can be concluded that albendazole, ivermectin and fenbendazole found as effective against gastrointestinal (GI) nematodiasis and the body weight increased significantly (p<0.01) as well.
