Sushma, Vikas Nehra and Deepika Lather
Postmortem records of young ones of ruminants affected with digestive and respiratory system disorders upto six months of age brought to the Department of Veterinary Pathology, LUVAS, Hisar during the period of five years (starting from January, 2010 to December, 2014) were analyzed for age-wise, sex-wise, system-wise, month-wise mortality. The maximum age-wise mortality in young ones of ruminants was in age group of upto 1 month followed by 1 to 3 months and 3 to 6 months. The overall sex-wise mortality in male young ones of ruminants was higher than females. Overall month-wise mortality in young ones of ruminants was higher in summer (March-June) followed by winter (November-February) and minimum in rainy (July-October) season. Pneumonia was the main affection of respiratory tract and enteritis, gastroenteritis, hepatitis were main gastrointestinal tract affections. The overall system-wise cause of mortality in young ones of ruminants was higher due to involvement of digestive system along with respiratory system and other systems affections. Digestive systems alone accounted for mortality whereas respiratory system alone accounted for mortality.
