Abstract

The study was carried out on fifty sheep and fifty goats, forty (40) sheep and forty (40) goats were suspected clinically as diseased cases while other ten animals of each type were apparently healthy and were kept as a control groups. All animals (Sheep and Goats) were belonged to the villages scattered in the Qena Governorate Egypt.

Blood samples were taken from the external jugular vein, and then centrifuged and stored until analyses.

The blood was taken aseptically from all the animals and transported to laboratory for biochemical analysis for estimation of copper and zinc in diseased and controls animal Fecal samples was taken aseptically from all the animals and transported to laboratory for the presence of internal parasites. The results showed a highly significant effect of copper and zinc (P<0.0001). The aim of this work was to follow the changes, during the early diagnosis of foreign body formation in the rumen of sheep and goats.
