Helminthiasis in cattle: prevention and treatment.

Abstract

In dairy cattle breeding, the task of paramount importance is the reproduction of the herd and the receipt of healthy repair young animals. The reason for the decline in animal productivity may be various diseases, including parasitic (helminthiases). Strongyloidosis and strongylitosis of the gastrointestinal tract are widespread. For calves are particularly dangerous pathogens of ostertagiosis (they damage the glands of the abomasum, as a result of which secretory function is impaired) and strongyloidosis (migrating through the lungs in the larval stage, parasites can cause bronchopneumonia and cause secondary infection). Often strongyloidosis, ostertagia and esophagostomiasis occur in the form of mixed invasions with cryptosporidiosis and eimeriosis.
