Abstract

Four kids from a flock were presented with symptoms of muscle tremors, ataxia, hind limb paresis, head tremors and recumbency. Hemogram revealed anemia and neutrophilia. Based on estimation of plasma copper levels the condition was diagnosed as hypocuprosis. Serum total protein and Gamma-glutamyl transferase enzyme (GGT) were also low. On investigation during flock visit, other kids also exhibited similar signs. Affected kids were administered with oral Copper sulphate (35 mg/kg), hepato protectant and hematinic. Recovery was reported while severely affected kids died inspite of treatment.
