The study aimed to assess the study of three different drugs against trichostrongylosis in goats. There were 4 groups, Group A served as the healthy control (n=8), group B, C and D kept as the treatment group and each group having 16 goats. Group B, C and D were treated with Fenbendazole, Levamisole and Ivermactin respectively. For identification of Trichostrongylus spp. micrometry and coproculture of the samples were performed. The therapeutic efficacy was evaluated through determination of eggs per gram (EPG) count. Faecal sample were collected before treatment and 14th days after treatment of study. Pre and post-treatment EPG values were recorded and compared the result showed that on the basis of comparative efficacy of different drugs, the therapeutic use of Susp. Fenbendazole orally @ 7.5 mg/kg body weight with supportive therapy and better management practices was emerged out as the effective modality in resolving trichostrongylosis in goats.
