Abstract:

Salmonellosis poses a high risk in the poultry birds and widely distributed worldwide. It results in huge economic loss and very difficult in control of disease. The clinical signs are reduced feed intake, droopiness, ruffled feathers, huddling of chicks and diarrhoea, dehydration, and mortality were reported. The morbid chicks were investigated for post mortem changes and gross lesions include livers were invariably enlarged, soft in consistency, congested and showed bronze discoloration. The birds were treated with furazolidone antibiotic and found to be effective against the Salmonella infection of poultry. General hygienic and biosecurity measures should be part of the overall management plan of poultry farms for effective control of bacterial infection.
