Author(s):

Abstract:
Two sick cattle, 2.5-6 years old were examined and the anamnesis revealed gradually increasing swelling under the jaw, inappetance and infrequent diarrhea. The coprological examination revealed the presence of eggs of Fasciola spp. The haematological studies revealed lower values of haemoglobin (Hb), total erythrocyte count (TEC) and packed cell volume (PCV), and the biochemical studies revealed hypoproteinemia, hypoalbuminemia, and increased values of alanine transaminase (ALT), aspartate transaminase (AST), and total bilirubin. The cows were treated with clorsulon in combination with ivermectin along with hematinics and hepato-protective drug as supportive therapy, and revealed complete resolutions of clinical signs within 3 weeks of treatment.
