The aim of present study was to assess the anthelmintic resistance against strongylosis in goats in and around Bidar district of Karnataka state. Anthelmintic resistance in goats affected with strongylosis was assessed according to Faecal Egg Count Reduction test (FECRT). Faecal sampleswere collected on 0, 7th and 14th day after treatment and faecal egg per gram (EPG) was determined by modified Gordon and Whitlock technique. FECR values were reduced significantly on 7th and 14thday in comparison with day ‘0’. However, the FECR percentage was highest in Group which was treated with Levamisole. Hence Levamisole was found to be effective in eliminating strongyles in goats with higher FECR percentage of 96.85 per cent whereas, FECR less than 90 per cent with fenbendazole and ivermectin suggestive of developing resistance in strongylosis of goats in and around Bidar.
