Extracts of goat bile Chemicals substances were investigated for anthelmintic activity against Haemonchus concortus. Various concentrations (50, 100 and 200 mg/ml) of each extract of the bile were tested using the egg hatch assay and larval development assay. All extract tested showed 100% mortality at the end of 180 min of the test duration. While 0.25 mg/ml of albendazole the positive control showed 100% mortality after 120 min. The results of the egg hatch inhibition assay showed that at a concentration of 200 mg/ml, 65% of the eggs were inhibited from hatching by the bile extract. Albendazole inhibited 98% of the eggs from hatching at 0.25 mg/ml. Goat bile extract has potential as anthelmintic from nature, that can be explore in the search for natural remedy for parasitic affections.
