Abstract:
Mastitis is one of the major challenges faced by veterinarians, government and policy makers working on socio-economic upliftment of rural livestock owners. Undiagnosed and unattended cases of subclinical mastitis tend to convert into clinical mastitis which affects the quality of milk and forces livestock owners to suffer from economic losses. Therefore, there is a need to evaluate existing status of subclinical mastitis in milch animals. Various diagnostic modalities are available to diagnose mastitis; however, a relatively easy, quick and cost-effective test should be available at field level for early detection of subclinical mastitis. Such tests are always required to be evaluated for their clinical applicability. The present investigation was conducted to evaluate in-vivo efficacy of MESTICHECK component of Mulchize farm hygiene kit for diagnosis of clinical and subclinical mastitis in milch animals at Postgraduate Institute of Veterinary Education & Research (PGIVER), Kamdhenu University, Rajpur (Nava), Himmatnagar during August-2020 to January-2021. The result of MESTICHECK was compared with the results of 08 other diagnostic modalities established to diagnose mastitis in cases registered at Veterinary Hospital. Based on the study, it is concluded that MESTICHECK has observable diagnostic value and feasibility of using at field level. Further evaluation and use of MESTICHECK is encouraged through extensive investigations including greater number of cases.
