The investigation was undertaken to study the hematological changes and efficacy selected anthelmintics in gastrointestinal nematodiasis affected spotted deer. The hematological picture gave the evidence of anemia in spotted deer affected with gastrointestinal nematodiasis, characterized by a significant reduction (p<0.01) in total erythrocyte counts (TEC), haemoglobin (Hb) and alteration in values of MCV, MCH and MCHC. A significant leukocytosis (P<0.05) was evident in gastrointestinal nematodiasis affected spotted deer. Albendazole and levamisole were found to be effective in reducing fecal eggs count but the efficacy of albendazole was higher in contrast to levamisole. 1304573729.php
