Abstract:

A total of 75 suspected blood samples from buffaloes were screened by using Giemsa staining technique during the rainy season. The present study was conducted for a period of 6 months from June 17 to November 17. The microscopic examination of stained blood smears were performed and presence of intraerythrocytic piroplasms in different shapes like round, oval, signet ring, pear, comma, rod or bacilli indicating the prevalence of theileriosis in buffaloes in and around Patna, Bihar. The smears were examined minutely and at least 10 randomly selected microscopic fields were studied. Out of 75 suspected cases of buffaloes, 7(9.33%) were found positive for theileriosis. The prevalence of the disease was highest (11.11%) during post monsoon (October-November) followed by August-September (9.75%) and June-July (6.25%), might be due to abundance of vector during post monsoon. Previously the incidence and prevalence of theileriosis in buffaloes has been reported from different parts of India by various workers in several years. However, the status of Theileria infection has not yet been reported in buffaloes in Bihar. So the study was designed to record the prevalence of theileriosis in Buffaloes in and around Patna, Bihar.
