Abstract:

Bovine tropical theileriosis is a tick-borne haemoprotozoan disease of cattle caused by Theileria annulata. Theileria is one of the most important blood protozoan parasite and a major constraint to the dairy industry and causes devastating losses to the livestock worldwide. Theileria annulata have complex life cycle and is transmitted by Hyalomma anatolicum anatolicum transtidially. The present report demonstrates the successful therapeutic management of theileriosis in calves. Clinical examination of affected animals revealed high fever (104 0F), generalized enlargement of superficial lymph nodes, dullness, conjunctival petechia, anorexia and diarrhoea. The blood smears examination after staining revealed the presence of Theileria organisms. Buparvaquone was used as the drug of choice along with supportive therapy.
