Abstract

Present investigation was conducted with an aim to investigate epidemiology and clinical markers of trypanosomosis in naturally infected buffaloes. It was found to be prevalent throughout the year of study and maximum prevalence was observed in the wet months of monsoon and post monsoon season, September and October months and least in the dry months, May and June. It has been found that there was significant increase in prevalence of trypanosomosis in buffaloes with increase in age and parity. During present investigation the clinical markers of trypanosomosis were determined based on the degree of frequency distribution of clinical signs, which can be of great importance in field conditions where the diagnostic facilities are lacking.
