The rodents are an important reservoir for some zoonosis; that play the bold role in the transmission and distribution of disease. According to rodents’ role in transmission of zoonosis, this investigation is designed for study on rodents’gastero-intestinal (GI) metazoan parasites in Saqqez county, Kurdistan province. In a cross-sectional study 138 animals (10 Ellobiuslutescens, 30 Microtussocialis, 49 Musmusculus, 10 Rattusrattus, 7 Merioneslibycus and 32 Rattusnorvegicus) were taken using traps in Saghez. All of samples were evaluated for GI helminthes parasitic infection. 58% of animal were infection any one genus of parasite. The infection rate were reported 90% in Microtussocialis, 85.7% in Merioneslibycus, 70% in Ellobiuslutescens and Rattusrattus, 46.9% in Rattusnorvegicus and 36.7% in Musmusculus. The infection rate in female animals (75%) was significantly higher than males (50%) (p=0.005). The isolated genus were 37.7% Syphaciaobvelata, 30% Aspiculuristetraptera, 20.3% Nippostrongylusbrasiliensis, 10.1% Syphaciamuris, 9.4% Syphaciamesocriceti, 5.8% Rodentolepis nana, 5.1%, 4.3% Hymenolepisdiminuta, 3.6% Cataenotaeniapusilla and 2.2% larval stage of Taenia taeniaformis. Results show that rodents are the important reservoirs of parasites in the region. Therefore, reliable methods to control of rodents are important. This investigation is the first report of rodents’ parasitic infection in studied region.
