Abstract

The interactions of host, vector and parasite in bovine trypanosomiasis transmission cycles in southwest Nigeria are not yet well understood. Trypanosoma (Trypanosomatida: Trypanosomatidae) species infection prevalences and bloodmeal sources were determined in transmitting vectors of the genera ...

Abstract

Most studies on the distribution of Cryptosporidium species in cattle were done with dairy breeds in industrialized nations. In this study, 65 fecal samples from randomly selected 12-24-week-old diarrheic calves in four white Fulani herds in southwestern Nigeria were screened for Cryptosporidium...

Abstract

The efficacy of "Ivomec pour-on" (ivermectin, 500 µg/kg bwt) as an anthelmintic for gastrointestinal nematode parasites was investigated in 10 cattle in Nigeria. There were significant reductions in the average faecal egg counts for post-treatment days 5, 11, 29 and 56 when compared with those of 5 ...

Abstract

A comparison of the symptomatology, haematology and prevalence of trypanosomiasis in 81 Holstein Friesian cattle (52 adults, 29 calves) and 20 White Zebu (all adults), exposed to natural infections on a ranch in a rain forest zone of Nigeria, is presented. 23 (44%) of the adult Friesians had...
