Among the main sectors that provide the population with meat and dairy products, a large share falls on cattle breeding. An obstacle to the successful production of this industry is invasive bovine disease. One of these diseases is trichurosis of cattle. This disease is caused by roundworms of the genus Trichuris, which are localized in the thick intestine and lead to anemia, exhaustion, and sometimes even death of animals. Therefore, a detailed study of this disease will contribute to the development of dairy and meat production.

The studies were conducted on 6-12 month-old donkeys, patients with trichyrosis.  Animals studied changes in biochemical parameters of serum in the process of use of drugs.  The heifers were divided into 5 groups: 4 experimental and 5-th - control.  Animals of the 1st and 2nd groups used the drug promectin 1% injection, the first group once, the second - twice, at intervals of 24 hours.  The 3rd and 4th groups used the preparation albentabs-360, internally.  The third group - one time, the fourth - twice, at intervals of 24 hours.  The blood was taken until the drug was prescribed on the 5th and 10th day after the last dose of the drug.

 Before prescribing drugs in blood serum sick animals, there was a decrease in the content of total protein, albumin, nitrogen, urea, creatinine, glucose, calcium, lipoproteins and carotene.  Also noted was an increase in the activity of AsAt.

 It was found that on the 5th day after the last application of serum products in experimental animals, the content of total protein, albumin, creatinine, calcium, phosphorus, lipoprotein and carotene increased.  At the same time, there was a decrease in the activity of AsAt and AlAt in the 1st, 2nd and 4th groups of animals, and in the 3rd group the enzyme activity increased.

 On the 10th day after treatment, in the 1 st, 2 nd and 4 th groups, further changes in biochemical parameters were noted in the direction of increase.  Indicators in these groups have reached the level of physiological limits.  In the 3rd group, with a single dose of albentable 360, there was a decrease in the content of total protein, albumin, globulin, creatinine, inorganic phosphorus and lipoprotein in the activity of alkaline phosphatase.  The activity of AsAt and AlAt decreased in 1st and 3rd groups, while in the 2nd and 4th groups it has increased.
