This study was carried out to determine the prevalence of intestinal parasites from abattoir effluents. A total of 200 samples were examined out of which 50 samples each from Goat, Sheep, Pig and Cow respectively. These samples were processed using standard parasitological techniques including macroscopy, microscopy; formol ether concentration and modified Ziehl Neelsen method. Out of the 200 samples examined 109 where positive for intestinal parasites. This result revealed an overall prevalence of 54.5% in all. A total of 30 (60%) was recorded for goat, 23 (46.0%) cow, 29 (58.0%) sheep and 27 (54.0%) pigs. The prevalence of different parasites encountered included Ascaris suum (5.6%), Trichuris trichiura (3.2%), Hookworm (24.2%), Strongyloides stercolaris (0.8%), Teania spp. (2.8%), Enterobius vermicularis (7.1%) Trichostrongylus (8.3%), Diphyllobothrium latum (0.4%), Schistosoma intercalatum (0.1%), Fasciolopsis buski (8.3%), Fasciola hepatica (3.2%) and Metagonimus yokogawai (0.4%). Others were Paragonimus westermani (0.4%), Entamoeba coli (9.9%), Entamoeba histolytica (6.7%), Giardia lamblia (4.4%), Trichomonas hartmani (0.8%), Balantidium coli (11.1%) and Oocyst of Crypstoporidium (2.0%). The highest prevalence was hookworm (42.6%) in goat and Balantidium coli (60.7%) in pigs. Fasciolopsis buski and Metagonimus yokogawai had the lowest prevalence (0.4%). There was a significant prevalence of intestinal parasites in effluents of Jos Abbatoir.
