Abstract:
Exertional myopathy is a noninfectious, metabolic disease of wild and domestic animals that can lead to significant morbidity and mortality. The ecological studies now shown that oxidative status could be use for impact on fitness components in wild animals. The oxidative status can also predict their chances of reproduction and survival in the future in their natural habitat. In both the studied ruminants, spotted deer and barking deer, the oxidative markers in muscle tissues showed an insignificant raise in the affected animals. The condition of capture myopathy due to exertion or stress-induced muscle degeneration in affected captured wild animals is often fatal. There are very few systematic studies on the capture myopathy in wild animals. This makes early detection of this condition difficult. Therefore present study was carried out for comparative oxidative studies on wild spotted deer (Axis axis) and barking deer (Muntiacus muntjak) affected with myopathic conditions.
