Concurrent infections of Subulura brumpti and pasteurella in Japanese quails (Coturnix coturnix japonica) and their management
MS Sreelakshmi and RB Vishnurahav
Six numbers of twenty-eight weeks old Japanese quails were brought for post mortem examination with a history of lethargy, sinusitis, enteritis production loss and moderate persistent mortality from a flock of 500 birds. A detailed necropsy was conducted, gross lesions were recorded, worms from caecum were collected in normal saline and intestinal contents were collected for microscopic examination. Tissue impression smears from heart and liver were taken for Leishman’s and Gram’s staining for presence of bacteria. Morphological characters of the worm confirmed that it is Subulura brumpti. Impression smears confirmed the bipolar Gram negative organism pasteurella. The flock health was improved after the treatment.
