Present work was carried out in the Ganjam Field Unit of AICRP on Goat improvement, Odisha to study the effect of deworming regimen on helminths and growth performances in growing Ganjam goats. It was found that deworming by using Ivermectin and Fenbendazole or Oxyclozanide and Levamisole preparation has got a significant effect on Ganjam kids with respect to body weight gain, haemoglobin, serum total protein, albumin and parasitic load. The effect of Ivermectin and Fenbendazole combination was found to be superior over Oxyclozanide and Levamisole combination on growth rate, helminthic infestation in terms of parasitic load and FECRT value. A negative correlation was observed between Hb% and PCV% with the mean parasitic load. Effect of deworming regimen was found to be non-significant at 2 or 3 months intervals using different anthelmintics with respect to parasitic load and growth performance. The deworming against helminths at an interval of 3 months is equally effective, economic and labour saving compared to 2 months.
