Today, breeding of small flocks of sheep and goats has increased on Belgrade area. Alongwith the increasing number of flocks the interest in examination of their health status increased as well. A study about occurrence of Paramphistomidae trematodes in small ruminants at spread Belgrade area was conducted. During the period from March 2009 to January 2010a total of 91 flocks of goats (n = 22) and sheep (n = 69), from 6 Belgrade districts, were examined. Paramphistomidae parasites were foundin 7 out of 67goats (prevalence of 10.44%) and 12 out of 89 sheep (prevalence of 13.48%) examined by necropsy.. After histological examination, the paramphistome trematodes were identified as Paramphistomum cervi. P.cervi has been previously found in sheep and cattle in Serbia, but this is the first report of P.cerviin in goats.
