Abstract:

The present study was conducted to study the therapeutic management of bacterial pneumonia in goats using different antibiotic protocols. A sum of 24 goats of above 1 years of age was divided into 4 groups consisting 6 numbers of animals each. Group I was kept as control and other 3 treatment groups (Group II, III and IV) consisted of animals showing clinical signs of pneumonia. These animals were treated with Ceftiofur sodium (Group II) @1.1 mg /kg, Amoxicillin and sulbactum combination (Group III) @ 11-22 mg/kg and Enrofloxacin (Group IV) @2.5-5 mg/kg through intramuscular route for five consecutive days along with the supportive therapy. The therapeutic efficacy of different antibiotic protocol was compared on the basis of the recovery of clinico-physiological signs and haemato-biochemical parameters. The highest recovery was observed in the group treated with ceftiofur sodium. Therefore, it can be concluded that the administration of ceftiofur sodium was more efficacious as compared to enrofloxacin and amoxicillin and sulbactum combination for treatment of bacterial pneumonia in goats.
