Abstract:
Anaplasmosis is an infectious and transmissible disease manifested by progressive anemia and the appearance of other characteristic disease symptoms. It is a world-wide tick-borne disease of ruminants caused by the rickettsia Anaplasma. A goat aged four years was presented with a history of high fever, anorexia, reduced water intake, depression, unusual bellowing and reduced milk production. Animal was weak and emaciated with severe tick infestation under the ear. Haemogram revealed low levels of PCV, anemia and thrombocytopenia. No hemoglobinemia and hemoglobinuria was evident. Blood smear examination revealed presence of Anaplasma spp. within the RBCs. The animal recovered uneventfully upon treatment with long acting oxytetracycline and supportive therapy.
