Author(s):

Abstract:
Sheep pox and goat pox are important OIE notifiable and transboundary diseases characterised by typical papules, pustules (rarely vesicles) on exposed body surfaces along with other associated signs. In present study a goat was presented to TVCC, C.V.Sc., Hyderabad with papules, pustules all over the body particularly on face, ears and tongue with elevated body temperature, generalized weakness and off feed. The scabs were collected for Transmission electron microscopy, which revealed characteristic virions suggesting capripox virus. Cultural examination and Antibiotic Sensitivity Test revealed Staphylococcus spp and sensitivity for enrofloxacin. Therapy with enrofloxacin @5mg/kg body weight for 7 days, meloxicam @0.2mg /kg body weight for 3 days followed by chloraphenaramine malleate 0.5 ml for another 3 days with topical boroglycerine paste on pock lesions for a couple of weeks revealed noticeable improvement in lesions and other signs in 3-10 days.
