(2011)VLAAMS DIERGENEESKUNDIG TIJDSCHRIFT.80(6).p.403-406 Mark abstract On a Belgian stud farm, problems with horses in poor body condition persisted between autumn 2009 and autumn 2010. The horses had a dull hair coat and lost weight in spite of a correct deworming strategy. Blood analysis revealed liver damage, especially the gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT) was elevated. On faecal examination, Fasciola hepatica eggs were found in one horse. After treatment with triclabendazole all complaints disappeared. This case shows that fasciolosis must be incorporated in the differential diagnosis of horses with poor body condition and elevated liver enzymes.
