ABSTRACT Equine has an important role all over the world of veterinary sciences as well as civilians interesting, but internal parasites affect equine reduce their physical powers and beautiful appearance which is important for racing and showing. We focus in our review on epidemiology diagnosis and treatment of strongylosis as an important parasitic disease in equine. There are two strongyle families; firstly is the large strongyle which caused by stronglus vulgaris which is the most pathogenic and wide spread species in equine that may cause severe internal organs damage. Verminous Arthritis Embolism may cause death due to migration larvae. The second member is the Small strongyle which causes mild symptoms of diarrhea and weight loss. …show more content…

Cyathostomine is one of the smallest strongyle important internal parasites in horses (Love et al., 1999) with almost 90% of horses infected with more common species of small strongyles (Reinemeyer et al., 1984). The large strongyle infections were diagnosed with an infection rate of 58.5% (Saeed et al., 2010 ). one of the most common and pathogenic parasites of horses has been considered as S. vulgaris (Claire and Masterson., 1987; Krecek et al., 1987; ; Love and Duncan, 1992; Love et al., 1992; Matthews and Morris, 1995Gasser et al., 2004; Hubert et al., 2004; Martin et al., 2007; Kuzmina et al., 2012). Most studies established that S. vulgaris infection in horses 55–90% of horses harbor (Ottaway and Bingham, 1945, Meads, 1969). The highly spread of infection in most equine e.g. donkeys and horses, likely to be cured of the infection at the end of their life (Owend and Slocombe., 1985). Large number of strongyles infections cause inflammatory enteropathy, reduce intestinal motility, and colic (Lyons et al., 999; Nielsen et al 2006; Bechera et al., 2010;; Pilo et al
