dc.description.abstractFaecal egg count reduction tests (FECRT) and larval cultures were used to assess the prevalence of anthelmintic resistance amongst sheep and goats on farms served by Kenya's five regional Veterinary Investigation Laboratories. Twenty-four out of 42 farms tested (57%) showed resistance to at least one anthelmintic group. Resistance to levamisole was found in nine out of 35 sheep farms tested (26%) and 12 out of 24 goat farms (50%). Resistance to benzimidazole drugs was found in 10 out of 28 sheep farms (36%) and six out of 20 goat farms (30%). Larval cultures of post-treatment faecal samples showed resistance to be predominantly due to Haemonchus contortus. Twelve farms were routinely using substandard products which appeared to have no anthelmintic activity.en
