trypanosoma brucei infection in asymptomatic greater kudus (tragelaphus strepsiceros) on a game ranch in zambia.trypomastogotes of trypanosoma brucei were detected from 4 asymptomatic kudus (tragelaphus strepsiceros) on a game ranch located approximately 45 km north east of lusaka, zambia. blood smears examined from 14 wildlife species comprising of the impala (aepyceros melampus), kafue lechwe (kobus leche kafuensis), sable antelope (hippotragus niger), tsessebe (damaliscus lunatus), warthog (phacochoerus aethiopicus), puku (kobus vardoni), zebra (equus burchelli), waterbuck (kobus ellipsiprymnus), bushb ...201020333288
a seasonal survey of gastrointestinal parasites in captive wild impala antelope on a game facility south of lusaka, zambia.faecal samples (n = 1947) from captive wild impala (aepyceros melampus melampus) were examined over a period of 14 months to determine quantitative seasonal helminth egg excretion patterns and qualitative protozoan oocyst excretion patterns. geometric mean monthly faecal egg counts (fecs) ranged from 20 to 575 and coprocultures revealed three parasite genera, namely trichostrongylus, haemonchus and strongyloides. larvae of the trichostrongylus spp. were most predominant from faecal cultures. no ...201122071007
Anthelmintic efficacy in captive wild impala antelope (Aepyceros melampus) in Lusaka, Zambia.There has been an increase in the number of wild ungulates kept in captivity for ecotourism and conservation in Zambia and these animals are susceptible to a number of diseases including gastrointestinal helminth infections. Surveys to determine anthelmintic efficacy to gastrointestinal nematodes in captive-wildlife are not common and there have been no reports of anthelmintic resistance in captive-wildlife in Zambia. This study was carried out to determine the efficacy of the benzimidazole anth ...201122115945
use of bait containing triclabendazole against fasciola gigantica in a herd of captive wild impala (aepyceros melampus).although the efficacy of triclabendazole treatment against fasciola gigantica has been shown before in cattle and buffaloes, there appears to be no published report on the efficacy of triclabendazole in impala or other antelope species. as part of a health monitoring programme at mulungushi international conference centre, lusaka, zambia, a coprological examination was undertaken to investigate the helminthological status of captive impala (aepyceros melampus). of 39 fresh coprological samples, ...201727225321
