S Abhilash, J Sowmya, Md Azharuddin and A Vijaya Kumar
To know the incidence of brucellosis in sheep of by Indirect ELISA. A total of 180 bloodsamples collected from apparently healthy sheep of Visakhapatnam District, Andhra Pradesh. Antibodies against Brucella were found by Indirect ELISA in 9 sera samples (5%) out of 180 sera samples tested. The results indicate that the incidence of brucellosis is lowsheep and the disease is more in ewes when compared with sheep, but regular screening should be done to minimize economic loss to the farmers and to avoid spread of disease to humans as it is a Zoonotic in nature.
