Bovine babesiosis significantly reduces the productivity of cattle throughout the world including India. A crossbred dairy cow in the Livestock Farm Complex, Lakhimpur College of Veterinary Science, AAU, Joyhing, North Lakhimpur, Assam was reported with high rise of temperature (40ºC) and haemoglobinuria from 2 days. Blood smear examination revealed the presence of intraerythrocytic Babesia bovis organism. The affected animal later was treated with imidocarb diproprionate @ 1mg/kg body weight once through subcutaneous route, Meloxicam @ 2mg/kg body weight through intramuscular route for 2 days (stopped once fever subsided), Mecopac forte 5ml through intramuscular route for 3 days, Normal saline 500ml twice daily for 3 days (till fever subsided) and Floraboost bolus. Later the animal started showing recovery from 2nd day onwards without any complications. In the present study Imidiocarb constatntly cleared Babesia organism. Hence, the information from the present communication will help the field veterinarians to adopt effective therapeutic management strategy for the control bovine babesiosis.
