Este nematodo es un parasito cosmopolita que parasita el abomaso y estomago de una lista amplia de mamiferos poligastricos y monogastricos, incluyendo bovinos, ovinos, caprinos, equinos, cervidos, cerdo y el hombre (Drudge et al.
La observacion macroscopica de parasitos gastricos se encontro en el 45,1% (124/275) de los estomagos, de los cuales 23 (8,4%), 56 (20,4%) y 45 (16,4%) estomagos pertenecieron a machos enteros, machos castrados y hembras, respectivamente, los parasitos se encontraban adheridos a la mucosa glandular en todos los grupos etarios y en todos los sexos en forma homogenea, y fueron clasificados como Trichostrongylus axei, en el laboratorio Clinico Veterinario de la Facultad de Medicina Veterinaria y Zootecnia de la Universidad de Cordoba, resultados similares a los reportados por Ayele y col.

Haemonchus contortus was the most dominant parasite (13.3%) followed by Trichuris ovis (5.6%) and Trichostrongylus axei (4.7%).Location significantly affected (Pless than 0.01) the overall prevalence (n=1000) of only nematodes (37.5%) and only trematodes (7.9%) in individual animals with locations 2 and 5 having the highest nematode (9.6%) and trematode infestation (2.8%) respectively and at the same time the lowest prevalence of trematodes (0.5%) and nematodes (5.6%).
Goats like other grazing animals are infested with large number of gastrointestinal nematodes such as stomach worms, Haemonchus spp., (bloodsucking worms) that cause anaemia and weight loss and Trichostrongylus axei which causes gastritis, diarrhoea and weight loss; worms of the small intestine such as Trichostrongylus colubriformis and Cooperia spp., heavy infestations of which cause diarrhoea, loss of condition and loss of appetite; Bunostomum and Gaigeria, hookworms of small intestine, which can cause anaemia, diarrhoea and loss of condition and Oesophagostomum spp.
