Mohamed Ibrahim Abdi - Soojeede

The prevalence of gastrointestinal parasites is a main cause of production loss in sheep. This study was conducted to know the prevalence of gastrointestinal parasites of Somali back head sheep in Wadajir and dharkeynley district, Somalia. Also evaluated considering sex. Materials and methods: Laboratory examination of Fecal sample was carried out at Wadajir and Karaan districts from January 2019 to April 2019. In total, 73 rectal fecal samples of sheep were collected and were examined for the presence of eggs and oocytes by using direct smear and counted by using quantitative techniques. Eggs/oocysts/cysts were identified according to their characteristic features. Result: the overall prevalence was 83.6 % that means 61 samples were positive, and 12 samples were negative of gastrointestinal parasites and also there is mixed parasitic infections having more than two parasites in one sample, 43 samples were mixed with (59 %). In the present study Coccidia spp (protozoan) and Monezia spp (trematoda) were found to be the superior parasites recorded in all the 61 positive samples. having Coccidia spp (protozoan), 39 (63.93 %) and Monezia spp (trematoda) 28 (45.90 %), the second highest groups were all nematode with percentage Haemonchus spp 22 (36.06 %), Trichostrongylus 10 (16.39 %), Strongyloides 8 (13.11 %) and Trichuris Spp 2 (3.28 %),. Whereas the lowest sample was Dictyocaulus spp (Nematode) and faciola spp (Trematoda), having percentages 1 (1.64 %) irrespectively. so the result had P value or Sig. (2-tailed) =.000 which means the test is significant. Researchers recommended as the Animal owners must get full awareness of how to control, treat and feed good quality folder and water to prevent the gastrointestinal parasites in themselves and their animals. Government must make regular deworming campaign to reduce prevalence rates of parasites
