Abstract: 1 Abstract A survey on gastrointestinal parasitic infestations in cattle was conducted at Cox’s Bazar Sadar,Cox’s Bazar district, Bangladesh during the period from 13thOctoer 2019 to 12th December 2019 using coproscopy. Examination of 62 fecal samples of Cattle revealed that 42.54% of the samples were positive for the gastrointestinal parasites. Among different gastrointestinal parasitic infestations, the overall prevalence of Fasciola spp infection was the highest (15.00 %) followed by Paramphistomum spp infection (9.33%). The lowest overall prevalence was recorded in Trichuris (2.62%)and Strongyloides spp infections (1.33%). Age specific prevalence was found higher in adult and young cattle where Fasciola spp infection was the highest (19.01%) in adult followed by young and calf. Paramphistomum spp infection was the highest in young (15%) where as Moniezia spp infection were more in adult cattle (6.29%). Toxocara spp infections were recorded highest (23.5%) in calf which was not statistically significant. Sex specific prevalence exposed that female cattle showed more susceptibility to different gastrointestinal parasitic infestations than male but it was not statistically significant. However, frequency of Fasciola spp infections was the highest in female crossbred cattle (9.89%) where as Toxocara spp (5%) and Moniezia spp (4.49%) were found more in male cattle. It could be stated that the current investigation was a limited study as topographical variation, seasonal pattern of the diseases as well as indigenous/native cattle were not included.
