The experiment was conducted to investigate the effect of Poly Unsaturated Fatty Acid (PUFA) rich diet on hematological value and helminth infestation of sheep. The experiment was carried with control group fed only with basal ration and other group were fed with basal ration in addition to 4% maize oil and soya oil, and water adlibitum. After eight months treatment, gastro intestinal tract helminthiasis and hematological changes were closely observed. In hematological analysis,erytrocyte and thrombocyte levels were significantly decrease (P<0.05), whereas MCV level was increased significantly (P<0.05). in this experiment during feeding of PUFA rich diets did not exhibit clinical symptoms, PUFA rich diets has antihelmintic effect against T.vitulorum, T.giardi, H.contortus, B.phlebotomum and T.globulosa.
