Abstract:
Diarrhoea being the leading cause of death in calves aged less than six months is a major source of economic loss to the dairy industry. The investigation was carried out on clinical cases of diarrhoea in buffalo calves brought to Teaching Veterinary Clinical Complex (TVCC), College of Veterinary Sciences, LUVAS, Hisar as well as from Hisar city and adjoining areas. Thirty clinical cases were selected in the present study based on faecal examination and were divided into four groups. Six healthy buffalo calves̕ samples were collected and constituted group I. Mean values of major plasma minerals such as calcium, phosphorus and chloride were found to be decreased significantly (p<0.05) indicating decreased absorption due to hypermotility, loss of electrolytes from body and hypersecretory intestinal mucosa. Oxidative stress parameters were also found to be increased significantly (p<0.05) indicating inflammatory reactions due to systemic infections.
