The present study was conducted to study the prevalence of pneumonia in and around areas of Durg district of Chhattisgarh state. The prevalence was studied on the basis of clinical signs like rise in rectal temperature, bilateral nasal discharge, increased heart rate, increased respiration rate and abnormal lung sounds on auscultation. The prevalence of pneumonia and its correlation with age, sex, housing and season in goats was studied in total number of 900 goats for a period of a year (September, 2017 to July, 2018). The overall prevalence rate of pneumonia in goats recorded after the study was 28.11%. The age-wise prevalence was found highest in between age group of 0-6 month (43.48%) followed by 7-12 month (33.20%) and above 1 year (23.32%).The prevalence of pneumonia was found very slightly higher in female goats (51.8%) as compared to male goats (48.2%).The prevalence was highest during winter (October- January) followed by rainy season (June-September) and least prevalence was observed in summer season (February -May). The prevalence in winter, rainy and summer season was 58.5%, 37.15% and 4.35%, respectively. The prevalence based on the type of housing was observed highest in free ranging (51.78%) followed loose housing (32.02%) and least prevalence was recorded in stalls (16.20%). The study concluded that the overall prevalence of pneumonia in goats in Durg district of Chhattisgarh state was 28.11% and the highest prevalence was recorded in goats of age group between 0-6 months, more commonly during winter season and when the type of housing was mainly free ranging.
