Abstract:

An epidemiological study was done to study leptospirosis in domestic animals. Sera samples collected from various farm animals (cattle- 331, goat-88, horses -9, dogs -10) from various parts of the country were examined by Microscopic agglutination test. A panel of 12 reference strains was used in the study. Out of the 438 samples, 27 samples showed agglutination for Leptospira antigens yielding an overall positivity of 6.16%. Study revealed that 6.34% cattle and 5.68% goat sera were positive for leptospiral antibodies. Javanica, hebdomadis and grippotyphosa were the common serovars against which antibodies could be detected. Only one clinically suspected dog sample was found to be positive for the serovar grippotyphosa. The equine samples screened were negative for leptospiral agglutinins. The seroepidemiology studies revealed decreasing trend of leptospirosis in northern states and Andaman Nicobar Islands in comparison to the previous years.
