The present investigation revealed that the internal parasitic fauna of livestock was composed of a number of helminths and intestinal protozoa. Their incidence differed from one region to another and according to the species of the animals. These infestations resulted in both clinical and subclinical forms of parasitism which induced direct and indirect losses. The direct losses were due to acute illness and death. However, of more importance was the indirect loss due to a decrease in potential productivity of livestock including milk, meat and wool production.
