Abstract:
Ruminal acidosis is a most common affection in ruminants which occurs due to excess ingestion of highly fermentable carbohydrate rich feed, poor managemental practices etc. in this study, 10 healthy goats from farm and 20 goats presented at VCC of CVAS Navania, Vallabhnagar, with clinical signs of ruminal acidosis and having rumen fluid pH below 6 were examined for changes in clinical, haematological and serum biochemical parameters. Among various clinical parameters evaluated, the mean values of rectal temperature (99.94±0.17°F), ruminal motility (0.65±0.18 /min) decreased significantly, while heart rate (115.6±1.4 /min), respiration rate (38.05±0.76 /min) significantly increased. Among the various haematological parameters, the mean values of haemoglobin (12.97±0.21 g/dl), total erythrocyte count (15.07±0.50×106 /μl), total leukocyte count (12.99±0.25×103 /μl) significantly increased. Differential leucocyte count including lymphocytes, neutrophils, eosinophils and basophils were (67.83±0.44 %), (24.02±0.41 %), (3.38±0.10 %) and (0.39±0.02 %) percent, highly significant increase in eosinophils, lymphocytes while neutrophils decreased significantly in acidotic goats. Among various serum biochemical parameters, the mean values of serum glucose (98.12±5.80mg/dl), BUN (26.15±0.38mg/dl), serum creatinine, (1.30±0.08mg/dl) and albumin (3.91±0.10g/dl), ALT (47.694±1.83IU/L) and AST (98.71±1.22IU/L) increased significantly.
