Detection of endoparasites and hematological parameters changes in Gallinula chloropus
Gastro-intestinal parasites and blood parameters were examined in thirty five Moorhen birds Gallinula chloropus that hunted in different areas in AL-Diwaniya city during April –August 2016. Endoparasites were examined and diagnosed according to classical standard parasitological methods which revealed 57.14% of moorhen bird were infected endoparasite Protozoal infection with higher infection rate 20% then Cestodal infection 14% and the infection by Nematoda spp and Trematoda spp was 11.42 % respectively. The blood indices related to these parasite intestinal showed significant decrease of RBC count,PCV and Hb concentration, While WBC count increased significantly due to endoparasite infection.
