Abstract:
The retrospective data pertaining to respiratory diseases in goats in and around the Bidar was collected from the Veterinary Clinical Complex, Veterinary College, Bidar from March 2015 to February 2017. A total 375 cases of respiratory diseases were recorded and among them 75 goats were suffering from pneumonia that rose to 20 per cent of prevalence of pneumonia in goats in and around the Bidar. Among the respiratory diseases prevalence of pneumonia was analyzed based on age-wise, sex-wise and season-wise in goats. The results revealed that, 0-6 months (48.00%) age group and female goats (72.00%) are more susceptible when compare to other group. This may be due to low immunity power in kids less than 6 months of age and female goats showed more susceptibility might be due to flock composition rather than sex predilection. Study on seasonal prevalence of pneumonia recorded highest in winter season (49.33%) due to stress induced by cold season that creates conducive atmosphere for survival and transmission organisms among susceptible goats.
