Abstract:

In Tirthahalli of Shivamogga District of Karnataka State, 11 Malnada Gidda cattle of different age group succumbed to toxicity and exhibited the clinical signs of anorexia, shivering, nervousness, lethargy and wobbling gait. Ailing animals were treated symptomatically with diazepam, xylazine, fluids and B-complex vitamins with administration of activated charcoal. On obtaining the history and visit to the affected area, it was evident that the animals had consumed the fruits of the plant Anamirta cocculus. Blood analysis of the ailing animals revealed no change in the haematological and biochemical parameters except hyperglycaemia. Post mortem finding revealed extensive hemorrhage in the brain with no change in the other organs.
