Abstract:
In dairy industry diarrhoea being the main cause of death in calves during early stages of life. It is caused by a variety of organisms. Irrespective of etiological agents, the physiological and biochemical conditions of the host always get affected due to stress and other causative agents. Out of 30 diarrhoeic calves from which blood and faecal samples were collected, 3 animals were found positive for Balantidium coli, 16 animals for Strongyle/ Strongyloid spp., 3 animals for Eimeria spp. and rest 8 animals were not having any parasitic burden and grouped as non- parasitic one. The blood collected was estimated for haematological parameters whereas plasma was estimated for triglycerides, acute phase protein profile of diarrhoeic calves. Plasma acute phase protein Ceruloplasmin was also found to be increased significantly (p<0.05) indicating inflammatory reactions due to systemic infections.
