Desalew Salew* and Dr. Abaineh Munshea

ABSTRACT

A cross-sectional study was conducted in Merawi town from January to May with the objective of determining the prevalence of ovine fasciolosis and identify its risk factors in the study area. The fecal samples of (384) sheep were collected and tested to identify eggs of Fasciola spp. Moreover, the liver of this sheep were examined for the presence of adult Fasciola worm. The overall prevalence of Fasciola species infection of slaughtered sheep was 18.75%. During sample collection, information concerning history of sheep was collected using semi-structure interview. The results of the study showed that there is a significant (p<0.05) difference in the prevalence of ovine fasciolosis in; age groups, FAMACHA eye color, body condition score, agro-ecology, nature of grazing area, practice of mixed grazing and deworming history.
