K Satish Kumar and K Srikanth
Lumpy skin disease (LSD) is one of the emerging infectious viral diseases causing severe morbidity and less mortality among cattle in India. The affected cattle not only lose productivity and costs associated with hides, it also causes a serious economic loss to the farmers. In the present investigation, 30 LSD cattle were treated with three different treatment regimens by dividing them into three different groups. Group I cattle were managed with conventional allopathic drugs and group II with ethnoveterinary medicine Lumpicare for 5-10 days. Whereas, the cattle placed under GIII were treated with a combination of conventional and ethnoveterinary drugs. The common clinical signs noticed viz., lumps on the body along with fever, general weakness, and reduced milk yield showed improvement from day 5 and completely alleviated by day 10 among groups I and II but with a relatively shorter period in group II cattle that were treated with Lumpicare. However, these signs improved much faster and there was a complete clinical recovery along with improvement in milk yield within 3-5 days when treated with a combination of conventional and Lumpicare.
