Abstract

Ninety three (93) pigs (crosses of Large white, Landrace, Hampshire and Duroc) were screened for gastrointestinal worms before and after treatment with the following drugs: Levamisole, Albendazole, Morantel citrate, Piperazine., thiabendazole and Ivermectin. The anthelmintic efficacy (measure as reduction egg per gram (EPG) of faeces) observed ranged as follows: Ivermectin - 100% Levamisole - 89%; Thiabendazole - 78.0%; Albendazole - 73.2%; Morantel citrate - 78.7% and Piperazine - 70.6% Ivermectin and Albendazole cleared the Trichuris worms that were not cleared by Morantel, Piperazine and Levamisole. A combination of good hygiene and strict deworming programme will go a long way in eradication of pathogenic helminths of livestock.
