Concurrent infection of theileriosis and anaplasmosis in crossbreed cattle

Manu Jaiswal, Vivek Kumar Singh and Kuldeep Saini
A 5-year-old crossbred cattle with history of anoraxia, pyrexia, salaivation was presented to Veterinary Clinical Complex, PGIVER, Jaipur, India. On clinical examination, it was revealed that the animal was dull and depressed with rectal temperature of 105.2°F. The cow also exhibited nasal discharge, coughing, moist rales on auscultation of lungs, ruminal atony, dehydration, rough body coat, paler mucous membrane of conjunctiva and vulva and enlargement of prescapular lymph nodes. Heavy tick infestation was also observed. History and clinical signs suggested haemoprotozoan infection. Laboratory examination revealed mixed infection of Theileria spp. and Anaplasma spp. with low haemoglobin level (4.2g/dl). The cattle was treated with buparvaquinon, fluid therapy, liver extracts, antipyretic and antihistaminics for three days, but eventually succumbed at 8th day. Post-mortem examination revealed severe anaemic carcass with congestion and petechiae in the visceral organs. Lungs showed severe congestion suggesting that the animal might have died due to secondary bacterial pneumonia together with toxaemia.
