Abstract:

A female jersey dairy calf of three months old under intensive management presented with normal appetence but emaciation and stunted growth was diagnosed with subclinical parasitism by the tapeworm, Moniezia expansa and intestinal coccidia, Eimeria bovis diagnosed by faecal examination. Laboratory investigation revealed remarkable alterations in biochemical values however no changes in haematological values. Successful recovery was observed by treatment with broad spectrum anthelmintics and an anticoccidial at recommended dosage along with supportive therapy.
