the prevalence of goat hypodermosis in greece.goat hypodermosis caused by przhevalskiana silenus is common in greece causing quite serious losses on animal production and breeding, but no data regarding the prevalence of this parasitic disease were available within the last 17 years. towards this end, at the slaughter house of the area of thessaloniki, the number of affected hides due to skin penetration by p. silenus larvae was recorded and the prevalence was assessed to be 54.2%. the mean number of holes found per hide was 27.07 (ranged f ...19979802107

cattle and small ruminant piroplasmosis in macedonia, greece.macedonia is an endemic region of cattle as well as of sheep and goat piroplasmosis in cattle, theileria orientalis (=t. buffeli?), the agent of eurasian benign theileriosis, is the most common and widespread piroplasm species. t. annulata, the agent of tropical theileriosis, seems to be rare and limited to few foci, but causes very severe clinical cases, especially in imported pure-bred or cross-bred animals. babesia bovis and b. bigemina are present in several localities, and often coexist. ca ...199911071550
drought and flock isolation may enhance the development of anthelmintic resistance in nematodes.a survey of anthelmintic resistant nematodes was conducted in sheep and goat flocks in greece using in vivo and in vitro tests. faecal egg count reduction tests in macedonia were all greater than 99% indicating very high sensitivity of the nematodes to anthelmintics. in vitro tests showed benzimidazole resistant teladorsagia circumcincta in 17 out of 106 flocks on small islands. on the mainland there were only three cases of benzimidazole resistance out of 310 flocks and animals had recently bee ...200111390078
