Abstract:

A one year old female Holstein Friesian calf was presented with a history of acute onset of anorexia, haemoglobinuria and pyrexia with severe tick infestation. Clinical examination revealed elevated rectal temperature (40°C), icteric mucous membrane, enlarged prescapular and precrural lymphnodes, tachycardia and tachypnea. Haematological examination showed marked anaemia with low hemoglobin and hematocrit values. Peripheral blood smear examination revealed the presence of piroplasms of Babesia bigemia and Theileria annulata. The animal was treated with diminazene aceturate and buparvaquone along with supportive treatment of oxytetracycline, iron sorbitol and vitamin B complex injections for six days. Blood transfusion was done on third day. Animal recovered uneventfully after successful therapeutic management with antiprotozoal drugs and blood transfusion.
