Abstract:
In the present study leaves powder of M. oleifera have been evaluated as an oral herbal haematinic along with effective anthelmintic drug (closantel) to evolve cheaper, effective, echo-friendly, easily available haematinics in helminth infected anaemic goats. Total 18 adult helminth infected anaemic goats of either sex were selected based on pale conjunctival mucous membrane, haemoglobin concentration below 8 gm%. Another 6 normal healthy goats were selected as a normal control group (C) for comparison. Above 18 helminth infected anaemic goats were randomly divided into 3 equal treatment groups. Group T1 of six helminth infected anaemic goats was treated with single dose of closantel @ 10mg/kg bwt orally without any haematinic preparation. Group T2 of six helminth infected anaemic goats was treated with single dose of closantel @ 10 mg/kg bwt orally along with leaves powder of Moringa oleifera @ 50gm orally daily as a herbal haematinic preparation for 30 days. Group T3 of six helminth infected anaemic goats was treated with single dose of closantel @ 10 mg/kg bwt orally along with standard haematinic preparation @ 10 ml daily orally for 30 days. All goats were subjected for EPG, clinical and haematological study before (‘0’ day) and 15th and 30th day after treatment. The clinical study revealed high FAMACHA score and slight increase in respiratory and heart rate in helminth infected anaemic goats. All anaemic goats had low body weight before treatment. Haematological study revealed decrease in Hb, PCV, TEC, eosinophil % and MCHC in helminth infected anaemic goats. The helminth infected anaemic goats showed microcytic hypochromic anaemia. All the treatments showed 100 per cent reduction in FEC with improvement in altered clinical and haematological parameters within the study period, indicated effectiveness of all the treatment to alleviate anaemia due to helminth infection in goats. However, the group treated with standard haematinic preparation along with single dose of Closantel was found superior than the group treated with Moringa oleifera leaves powder along with single dose of Closantel based on the better improvement in haematological parameters in anaemic goats.
