Abstract:
The study was conducted on five electrocuted wild monkeys that were brought to the Govt. Veterinary Hospital Kasdol, District-Balodabazar-Bhatapara (C.G.) in unconsciousness, comatose, and having fallen from heights due to high-voltage electrocution. Clinical examination has been showing wounds and injuries in different sites, absence of visual and pedal reflex, tachypnoea, and arrhythmia. A haematobiochemical examination has shown a marked elevation in hemoglobin concentration, TEC, neutrophil count, SGPT and BUN levels. The cases were successfully managed with adrenalin along with supportive treatment including fluid therapy, dexamethasone, and nervine tonics.
