Author(s): Rupesh Verma, Kusum Lata and Giridhari Das

Abstract: Gastrointestinal (GI) nematode infections are one of the most prevalent and important issue upsetting the livestock worldwide. The principal mode of control of GI nematodes is based on anthelmintics because it is simple, cheap and offers both therapeutic and prophylactic cover against GI helminths. But, due to the emergence of resistant against anthelmintics, the problem has become complicated. The problem of anthelmintic resistance in GI nematodes of ruminants is worldwide in distribution. It has been documented to all classes of anthelmintics and multi-class resistance exists in many domestic animals. The objective of this review article is to provide an overview on the prevalence of anthelmintic resistance in India, mechanism and the factors contributing towards anthelmintic resistance, detection methods and to outline some strategies that may be used in parasite control programmers.
