Abstract:
A three years old nondescript female goat was presented to Veterinary Clinical Complex, Veterinary College and Research Institute, Namakkal with the complaint of intermittent cough, anorexia and fever for four days. Clinical examination revealed fever (41 °C), tachycardia, tachypnoea, anaemia, tick infestation with rough hair coat, enlargement of prescapular lymph node and submandibular oedema. Haemato-biochemical examination revealed macrocytic hypochromic anaemia, hypoproteinaemia with hypoalbuminemia. Theileria spp. and Anaplasma spp. were detected at 298 bp and 139 bp, respectively in duplex PCR however, neither blood smear nor lymph node aspiration biopsy smear showed the presence of any haemoparasites. Animal was treated with Buparvaquone, Oxytetracycline, Haematinics, B complex vitamins, protein supplements and showed uneventful recovery.
