Abstract:

Serum samples from 126 clinically ailing goats showing signs like anorexia, fever, oligolactia, mastitis, icteric mucous membranes and abortion from different villages of Navsari, Surat, Tapi and Valsad districts of South Gujarat were examined for antileptospiral antibodies by microscopic agglutination test (MAT) using 17 serovars. Among screened goats, seropositivity was found to be 14.29 %. Seroreactivity was noted against serovars Hardjo, Canicola, Pomona, Pyrogenes, Bankinang, Grippotyphosa, Patoc1 and Australis. Female goats showed comparatively higher seropositivity than male goats. Age wise leptospiral seropositivity was found to be higher in goats above 3 years of age. Present result suggests leptospirosis in goats and also indicates circulation of reported serovars in south Gujarat.
