The present work aimed to evaluate the effect of aqueous alcohol Artemisia herba-alba and thymus vulgaris extract on the cryptosporidium parvum and there compared with spiromycine drug in the infected White Mouse (BALB/C)by using fifth groups (G1, G2, G3, G4 and G5) included 10 mice for each, the first four groups was experimentally infected with 106Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts. After infection of G1, G2 and G3 in mice were orally received aqueous alcohol Artemisia herba-alba, thymus vulgaris extract at dose of 1ml /100 g body weight and spiromycine drug at dose of 1ml /1000g body weight through17 days, G4 was infected non treated (control positive) while G5 was non-infected and non-treated (control negative).The results showed more clear effects in aqueous alcohol Artemisia herba-alba and thymus vulgaris extract treated groups and continued till reaching negligible degree or no oocysts detection at 10 and 14thto17 days post treatment but spiromycine drug continues oocysts execration till end experimentwith significant difference (p>0.05).It was concluded administration Artemisia herba-albaor thymus vulgarisextract was very protecting susceptible host against Zoonotic protozoa such as cryptosporidium parvum.
