The present study aims to identify liver parasites in cattle slaughtered at the Daloa slaughterhouse. The aim is to contribute to the health monitoring of zoonotic parasitic pathologies linked to the liver of cattle. After the cattle are slaughtered, the liver is removed from the animal and then examined. All of the suspected livers were seized. Specimens of parasites collected from the livers are stored in alcohol at 70?. Then the samples are transported to the laboratory for their characterization. of 345 livers examined, 100 harbored the parasite Fasciola gigantica which is a large liver fluke. Young cattle (2 to 3 years old) are the most infested with a prevalence of 57.45%. The proportion of animals with low parasite intensity is 55.10%.
