Gastrointestinal (GI) parasitic infections are serious problem in livestock animals. They are responsible for production losses, ill health and even death of the animals which leads to economic losses to the farmers. A study was carried out to detect the occurrence of parasitic infections in buffaloes in Jabalpur district of Madhya Pradesh, India. A total of 1237 faecal samples were examined in the departmental laboratory out of which 163 (13.18 %) were positive for different parasitic eggs/oocysts during a one year study period. The prevalence of Amphistomes (9.54%)) was highest followed by Strongyle (3.15%), Coccidia (0.65%), Fasciola (0.32%) and Moniezia (0.24%) infection. Seasonal prevalence revealed significantly higher (p < 0.01) in monsoon season (20.39%) than summer (11.86%) and winter (7.25%). Whereas age wise prevalence was non-significantly higher (p> 0.005) in adult (13.48%) as compared to calves (12.3%). Prevalence of nematode larvae showed preponderance of Haemonchus (43.6%), followed by Trichostrongylus (24%), Oesophagostomum (16.2%), Bunostomum (11.6%) and Strongyloides (1.7%). The most common Eimerian infection seen was Eimeria bareillyi, Eimeria bovis and Eimeria zuernii. The present investigation revealed that the prevalence of gastrointestinal (GI) parasites in buffaloes is common and relatively high.
