A study was carried out from April 2022 to half of June, 2022 at Toke Kutaye district on Guder town, Melka Naga and Naga File Keble by centering Guder Veterinary clinic. The aim was to estimate the prevalence of bovine fasciolosis and its associated risk factor depending on cross sectional study. From total of 383 fecal sample taken and laboratory, coproscopic examination carried out using the standard sedimentation technique to detect Fasciola eggs. 29 cattle or (7.83% P) cattle were found positive. From total 29 positive; 21 was adult age group while 8 were depending on poor body condition. The highest prevalence 27.59% was estimated on poor body condition from BCS. Depending on age 11.73% were estimated on adult. Therefore, statistically there is very great significant association on age and body condition score since (p<0.05). There was no significant association between prevalence of bovine fasciolosis, sex, and breed of animals as well as sampling site (p>0.05).
The age group compositions of the sampled animals were 47%, 37% and 16% for adult animals, young and calves, respectively; whereas 59% and 41% of the sampled animals were male and female animals, respectively. From the risk factors the old age groups and poor body condition has strong association with prevalence of the disease.
The annual economic loss due to liver condemnation (ALC) by fasciolosis at Guder municipal abattoir was estimated to Ethiopian birr 523,467.36 birr.
