Abstract:

Occurrence of haemonchosis and sudden death among goats were observed in Livestock Farm Complex (Goat Farm Unit), Lakhimpur College of Veterinary Science that comprises a flock of 33 animals (22 numbers of Beetal crossbred and 11 numbers of Assam Hill Goat). The incidences were recorded during August-September, 2020. The morbidity rate of haemonchosis in the present study was recorded 66.67 % (22 nos.) and mortality rate was 27.28% (9 nos.). The mortality rate in Beetal crossbred and Assam Hill goat was recorded 36.37% and 9.09% respectively. Haemonchosis was confirmed by demonstration of strongyle type eggs in the faeces and recovery of adult Haemonchus contortus worms in the abomasum at postmortem examination. Internal organs revealed ascites, hydrothorax and hydropericardium etc. Proper theraupeutic management, restricted movement of animals and provision of concentrate feed along with green tree leaves and grasses prevented fatalities in the flock anymore.
