Abstract:

The present study was undertaken to monitor bovine fluorosis in Chhattisgarh. A total of 528 cattle suspected for fluorosis were examined and the percentage of prevalence of fluorosis was 23.84%. Cattles of age group above 3 years were found to be more affected and females were more affected as compared to males for fluorosis. Maximum concentration of fluoride in water, soil and forage was recorded in Bastar district followed by Dhamtari, Bilaspur and Durg District. Higher concentration of fluoride was recorded in plasma, urine and hair in fluoride intoxicated cattle. The cases of fluorosis in cattle were diagnosed on the basis of clinical signs like dental mottling, lameness, bone deformity of hoof etc and fluoride concentration biological samples.
