Abstract:
A non-descript cow of age 4 year was presented at Veterinary Clinical Complex (VCC), PGIVER, Jaipur, with the history of fever, anorexia, hypersalaivation, sneezing, coughing from last 3 days and change in urine colour from last day. Tick infestation, swelling of pre-scapular lymph node, anaemia, haemoglobinuria came into portrait after thorough physical and haematological examination. Peripheral blood smear examination ruled out the presence of Babesia spp. and piroplasmic stages of Theileria in cow’s blood. The cow was treated with the Diminazene diaceturate deep intramuscular (I/M) @ 3.5 mg/kg body weight (BW) and Oxytetracycline long acting deep I/M @ 20 mg/kg BW at every 48 hour interval for 3 doses along with supportive therapy. Triumphant post-therapy recovery was observed.
