Prevalence, clinical and haemato-biochemical studies on mange in cattle

Author(s): Garima Rathore, SK Sharma, Monika Joshi, Amita Saini and AK Verma
Abstract: The aim of the present study was to find out the prevalence of mange in cattle and determine Clinico-haemato-biochemical alterations associated with it. Total 308 cattle were screened during the period of 1 year from October 2021to September 2022. The overall prevalence of mange was found 7.14 percent and the percent distribution of sarcoptic mange was higher (68.18 percent) as compared to psoroptic mange (31.82 percent). Age group-wise prevalence of mange was recorded highest in cattle below 6 months age, followed by 6 months to 3 years age group and lowest in adult cattle (above 3 years of age). The prevalence of mange was higher in crossbred cattle as compared to indigenous cattle. Female animals were more affected with mange than the male animals. Season-wise prevalence of mange was highest during winter season, followed by rainy and summer season. Clinical examination revealed alopecia, itching, discoloration of skin, scab/ crust formation, thickening of skin, erythema of skin and wrinkling of skin. Analysis of haematological parameters showed that haemoglobin, packed cell volume, total erythrocyte count and lymphocytes were significantly (p<0.01) reduced in mange affected cattle, whereas total leukocyte count and eosinophils were significantly (p<0.01) increased. Among biochemical parameters, serum total protein, serum albumin and serum globulin were significantly (p<0.01) decreased in mange affected cattle.
