Summary

A verminose nos caprinos é considerada uma das principais limitações no desenvolvimento da caprinocultura. O trabalho teve por objetivo avaliar a eficácia do tratamento homeopático no controle de verminoses dos caprinos. Dezoito cabras foram subdivididas em três tratamentos: Controle, Arsenicum album CH12, Sulphur CH12. Foi realizado acompanhamento do peso dos animais, contagem de ovos por grama de fezes (OPG), cultura de larvas e avaliação da condição física pelo Método FAMACHA. Os animais tratados com os medicamentos Sulphur e Arsenicum album apresentaram menores médias do que o controle de OPG, para Trichostrongyloide. Os animais tratados com Sulphur apresentaram a menor média de OPG para Strongyloides, não havendo diferença estatística entre os grupos tratados com Arsenicum album e o Controle. Não houve diferenças entre os tratamentos no peso dos animais ou no grau FAMACHA. Conclui-se que a homeopatia pode auxiliar no controle de endoparasitas em caprinos.

Summary translation

Gastrointestinal parasitism is considered a major limitation for the development of the goat industry. This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of homeopathic treatment in the control of gastrointestinal parasitism infections in goats. Eighteen goats were divided into three treatments: Control, Arsenicum album CH12, Sulphur CH12 . Animal weight, egg count per gram (ECG), larval culture and assessment of physical fitness by the FAMACHA method were assessed. Animals treated with the drugs Sulphur and Arsenicum album had lower mean ECG than the control group for Trichostrongyloidea. Animals treated with Sulphur had the lowest mean ECG for Strongyloides, although the groups treated with Arsenicum album and Control did not differ. There were no differences between treatments in animal weight or FAMACHA index. We conclude that homeopathy may help in control of endoparasites in goats.
