Abstract

Out of 101 suspected animals (72 cattle, 29 buffaloes) examined for Theileria annulata infection during July 2002 to June 2003, 6.94% of cattle were positive and all the buffaloes were negative for haeamoprotozoan infections. Haematological observations revealed normocytic hypochromic anaemia, neutrophilia, lymphopenia and leucocytosis. Biochemical changes revealed significant decrease in total plasma proteins, albumin and globulins while blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and circulating immune complexes were found to be increased significantly (P<0.05). Treatment with buparvaquone @ 0.05 ml kg−1 body weight resulted in restoration of normal haemato-biochemical parameters on day 7 to 15 days post treatment.
