Abstract:
Brucellosis is an important global zoonotic disease affecting both domestic and wild animals. In the present study paired serum samples (50 in no) were purposively collected from a sheep flock with a history of late abortions, retention of placenta in females and orchitis in breeding rams in Proddatur region of Y.S.R Kadapa District, Andhra Pradesh. Initially, Rose Bengal plate test (RBPT) was carried out for screening and later positive sera samples were subjected to standard tube agglutination test (SAT) to estimate the titre of infection. Among fifty, twenty-two (42%) were positive for brucellosis. As a preventive measure, all the infected sheep were isolated and strict quarantine measures were followed to control the spread of infection.
