Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: 1985Subject(s): Department of Clinical Medicine & SurgeryDDC classification: 0261,T Dissertation note: The present work was conducted to see the efficacy of Gonibantrin, Rintal and Ketrax against raundworms i.e., Toxascaris leonina, Toxocara canis and hookworm, i.e. Ancylostoma braziliense in wild felida.e in captivity because zoological gardens are permanent source of parasitic infestation. A survey was conducted to estimate the incidence of Toxacaris leonina, Toxocara canis and Ancylostoma braziliense in 66 wild felidae kept in the Lucky Irani Circus, the Eahawalpur zoo and the Lahore zoo. The incidence rate for these parasites was 100%, 100% and zero per cent respectively in the circus; 78.57%, 75% and 35b71% respectively in the Bahawalpur zoo; 84%, 76% arid 48% respectively in the Lahore zoo. The animals showing moderate to heavy infection were selected for therapeutic trials. Three trials were conducted on 13, 16 and 15 wild felidae kept in the circus, the Eahawalpur zoo and Lahore zoo. In each experimental station four groups i.e.. A, B, C and D of animals were made. Group A, B and C were treated with Combantrin., Ketrax and Rintal respectively, while group D was kept as untreated control group.. The efficacy of the drug was determined on the basis of reduction in the number of ova discharged in the faeces on 3rd, 7th, 14th, 21st and 30th day of post medication. Results revealed that Ketrax was the drug of choice against roundworms and hookworms, as it was found highly effective throughout the experiment. Combantrin and Rintal were also found almost equally effective against oundworms while against hookworms their efficacy was quite high upto 7th day of the experiment, later on the activity of Combantrin. lower down upto 46% on 30th day wherea.s in case of Rintal it became zero per cent.
