Haemato-biochemical alterations in caprine theileriosis

Meenu Manohar, Justin Davis K, K Vijayakumar, Vinod Kumar K and Sindhu K Rajan
Theileriosis is an important haemoparasitic disease of goats which causes serious economic losses to farmers. There is a paucity of information on the clinico-haemato-biochemical aspects of caprine theileriosis in Kerala. The present study was undertaken to evaluate the haemato-biochemical alterations associated with clinical cases of caprine theileriosis in twenty five smear positive goats in Thrissur district, Kerala. Major clinical signs observed were anaemia, fever, lymphnode enlargement, anorexia, respiratory distress. Haemato-biochemical analysis revealed macrocytic hypochromic anaemia with low Hb, Volume of Packed Red Cells (VPRC), platelet, Total Erythrocyte Count (TEC) and hyperproteinaemia with hyperglobulinaemia in the affected goats.
