Abstract:

Aetio-pathological studies of digestive and respiratory affections were undertaken on ten carcasses of kids of age below six months received for post mortem examination to the Department of Veterinary Pathology, Lala Lajpat Rai University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences (LUVAS), Hisar during a period of seven months i.e. from September, 2015 to March, 2016. Study revealed that maximum mortality was in kids of 1 to 3 months of age. Sex-wise mortality was more in males as compared to females. A system-wise cause of mortality was highest due to combined involvement of digestive as well as respiratory systems followed by involvement of digestive and respiratory system alone. Bacteriological study of different samples collected from carcasses of kids revealed that presence of E. coli, Proteus spp., Klebsiella spp. and Salmonella spp. Maximum number of bacterial species were isolated from intestine followed by lungs and heart blood. The results of in-vitro drug sensitivity testing revealed that most of bacterial strains were sensitive to gentamycin and resistant to tetracycline. Examination of faecal samples of dead and diarrhoeic kids revealed major infestation of Eimeria spp.
