Abstract:

The present study was conducted in cattle brought to Large Animal Medicine Unit, Teaching Veterinary Clinical Campus, Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Veterinary Education and Research and Ambulatory clinic for treatment of various medical ailments from June 2017 to November 2017. Seventy three cases with clinical signs of pale to icteric mucous membrane and tick infestation were subjected for blood smear examination and Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR). Out of these fifteen cattle were found positive for Anaplasma marginale infection either by blood smear and / by PCR, accounting to an overall prevalence of 20.55 percent The ticks collected from those animals were identified based on morphological features as Rhipicephalus appendiculatus.
