Abstract:

In the present study, a total 210 blood/serum samples were collected from goats housed in various farms, local flocks and panjarapoles located in Navsari and Valsad districts screened for Peste des petits ruminants (PPR) specific antibodies using PPR C-ELISA kit. Out of 210 serum samples 99 were found positive for PPR antibodies with overall seroprevalence of 47.14 per cent. District wise the seroprevalence in Navsari and Valsad districts was 60.44 per cent and 23.68 per cent, respectively. Females of this species showed higher seroprevalence (56.20, 86/153) rate in comparison to their counterpart male (22.80, 13/57). Seroprevalence was comparatively higher in November (90 %) followed by December (59.25%), January (52.17%) and August (11.11%) month. The age-wise seroprevalence was 68 per cent and 36.36 per cent in <1 year and 1 to 3 years of age group, respectively. Interpretation of complete blood count result shown decrease in Hb, PCV, monocytes and MCV value of seropositive group when compared with seronegative group. While biochemical parameters, ALT, ALP level and creatinine value were increased in seropositive groups of animals.
