      Abstract: Mathapati Praveen V., Saini Neetu
      INTAS POLIVET 2019 20(2): 216 - 219
      The heart rate and rhythm of fifteen (15) healthy thoroughbred horses of different ages and sex was analyzed continuously for ten (10) hours by holter monitoring. The horses were evaluated at rest using five channel digital Holter recorder. The minimum heart rate range recorded was 26-39 beats/min (bpm) and maximum heart rate range was 41-64 bpm. During rest, normal sinus rhythm was recorded in seven (7) horses. However, second degree atrio-ventricular (AV) block was detected in four (4) horses and sinus tachycardia was detected in other four horses. Exercise holter monitoring was done in ten (10) healthy thoroughbred horses. During exercise, sinus tachycardia, atrial premature complexes and ventricular premature complexes were detected.

      The study evaluates efficacy of Fenbendazole and Ivermectin against horse strongyles using in vitro techniques. The in-vitro egg hatch assay (EHA) revealed ED50 value of 0.1328±0.0216 μg/ml and LD50 LCL-UCL of 0.0793-0.1953 μg/ml for Fenbendazole. LD50 value was higher than 0.1μg/ml indicating presence of resistance to Fenbendazole in farm horses. Larval development test (LDA) of strongyle eggs with Fenbendazole and Ivermectin showed LD50 values of 0.127±0.0191μg/ ml (LD50 LCL-0.085μg/ml and LD50 UCL-0.177 μg/ml) and LD50 values of 0.0012±0.0002 μg/ml (LD50 LCL-0.0008 μg/ml and LD50 UCL-0.0018 μg/ml) respectively. It was concluded that strongyles had developed resistance to Fenbendazole and Ivermectin was fairly effective.

      Faecal samples of eleven horses were evaluated by faecal sedimentation technique for gastrointestinal parasites, out of which nine (81.81 percent) were found to be positive for strongylosis. For species identification, all positive samples were subjected to coproculture that displayed only Cyathostomum sp. larvae. All infected equines were treated with Fenbendazole @ 5mg/kg b. wt. Fecal egg count reduction test (FECRT) was conducted on 7th and 14th day after treatment which showed 63.63 percent and 86.1 percent reduction respectively. Eggs re-appearance was observed in one horse on 42nd day, revealing 88.88 percent efficacy of Fenbendazole and suggested need to switch to more efficacious drugs/ selective anthelmintic therapy for effective control of equine strongylosis.

      Therapeutic efficacy of trypanocides drugs was evaluated against trypanosomosis in donkeys. The efficacy was evaluated based on remission of clinical signs; time required for elimination of Trypanosoma evansi from blood stream; improvement in clinical, hematological and blood-biochemical parameters and extent of reversal towards normalcy and duration required for clinical recovery. It was concluded that Isometamidium hydrochloride therapeutic regimen was superior in treating trypanosomosis in donkeys. However considering better clinical recovery, use of either Isometamidium hydrochloride or Quinapyramine sulphate plus Quinapyramine chloride therapy regimen can be employed for successful treatment of Trypanosomosis in donkeys.

      Eight Kathiawari horses were anaesthetized with Romifidine-Ketamine for undertaking castration. Romifidine@ 40 μg/ kg and Ketamine 2 mg/ kg b. wt. were injected i/v and recorded induction time of 7± 1.01 minutes, duration of anaesthesia was 48±1.0 minutes and recovery at 62±1.07 minutes. Analgesia and muscle relaxation was sufficient for performing operation with smooth induction and recovery. Heart rate, respiration, temperature, hemoglobin, PCV and total protein decreased non significantly (p>0.05). BUN and creatinine increased non-significantly (p>0.05) while significant (p>0.05) increase of serum glucose and AST was recorded. Romifidine-Ketamine combination proved to be effective for castration and is suggested for other short duration operative procedures as well.

      The clinical study on twelve healthy horses was undertaken to evaluate the sedative effect of two different doses of Acepromazine maleate prior to Xylazine and Ketamine anaesthesia. Acepromazine maleate @ 0.02 mg/ kg and 0.04 mg/ kg was used as pre-anesthetic in group I and II respectively prior to intravenous injection of Xylazine (1 mg/ kg) and Ketamine (1.5 mg/ kg). The horses of group I with Acepromazine (0.02mg/ kg) showed signs of moderate sedation within 5-7 minutes following administration, where as 0.04mg/ kg dose produced signs of moderate compared to deep sedation within 2-4 minutes. The horses of group II showed prominent signs of deep sedation as group I. Induction of anaesthesia and degree of muscle relaxation was comparatively better in group II than group I. Induction of anaesthesia occurred within 158.16±3.22 and 148.6±3.08 seconds in group I and II respectively. No significant difference in induction time was observed between group I and group II.

      The study was carried out to assess different fodders and their effect on incidences of colic in horses in sub-tropical climatic conditions. It was observed that groundnut straw (Arachis hypogaea haulms), wheat straw (Triticuma estivum straw), Jawarkadbi (Sorghum biocolors tovers) and bazrakadbi (Pennisetum glaucum stovers) were the commonly used dry fodders. While green jawar, green lucerne and green bazra were the main green fodders. Percent incidences of colic in Indian horses were found more recorded from developed countries, where straws are not used for feeding horses. Highest percent incidence of colic were found associated with wheat straw, pearl millets (green) and sorghum (green) fodders in breeding horses.

An increase in borborigmous sound was heard on auscultation of both sides of abdomen. Ultrasonagraphic examination revealed hyperechoic material in stomach and ventral colon, thickened mucosa of greater curvature of stomach and intestinal lumen along with increased peristalsis. Radio-dense material in stomach and ventral colon were seen in radiography. Faecal sand sedimentation showed presence of sand in dung. Inspite of therapy, the animal did not responded to treatment and died. Post-mortem findings revealed accumulation of sand in entire gastrointestinal tract which leads to complete loss of structural integrity and loss of hind gut digestive functionality.

      A mare was presented with prolapsed rectum mass after complaint of diarrhea and intermittent abdominal pain. The prolapsed mass was injured, oedematous and contaminated with mud, faeces and wheat straw. The case was diagnosed as type I rectal prolapse after co-relation of history, clinical signs and thorough examination of elongated, cylindrical and protruded prolapsed mass. The prolapsed mass was washed thoroughly followed by flushing with Metronidazole solution. The prolapsed mass was lubricated, replaced into normal position by applying gentle pressure and post-operative care was undertaken. The animal was kept off fed for twenty four hours to reduce the possible irritation of rectal mucosa during defecation. The animal showed recovery after three days and non-reoccurrence of prolapse.

      The study was aimed to superovulate donor Indian mares using eFSH. eFSH administration was initiated on 7th day of estrus cycle with dose of 25 mg @ 12.5 mg x 12 hourly or 6.25 mg x 6 hourly in total six mares. Another six mares served as control. Treatment was continued till development of two or more follicles of 35 mm size. The superovulatory response was assessed by serial ultrasonography of ovaries twice daily. Artificial insemination was undertaken in all mares with detected ovulations were detected. Similar super-ovulatory response was seen in all six mares with average days (n) of eFSH treatment of 8.6 days. Average number of follicles (>35 mm) in super-ovulated mares were 5.5. Although ovulations per mare were 4.16, yet embryo collection per mare was only 1.16 (seven embryos from six treated mares) where as in control group, it was 0.83 (five from six control mares).

      Three advance pregnant mares due for foaling were presented with protruding red bag through vulval lips with patchy sweating and abdominal pain at foaling barn. Physical examination revealed protruded red bag from vulva with presence of cervical star on chorioallantoic surface, continuous straining and colic symptoms. Close examination revealed palpable fetal forelimbs with severe tenusmus and decided to go for assisted delivery. The red bag was ruptured manually and fetal front limbs were pulled outside by giving oxygen support to foal to prevent hypoxia. Delivered foals were kept on oxygen and plasma support and they stood up after 80-90 minute and started suckling the mare. Prompt recognition of premature placental separation and appropriate intervention are the key factors for survival of foal.

      A jenny was presented with straining since yesterday and difficulty in foaling. Fetal forelimbs were visible outside the vulva. Absence of pedal reflex confirmed fetal death. Per vaginal examination revealed complete cervical dilatation, dry and edematous foaling passage. The presentation was anterior and position dorso-sacral with right head lateral deviation. Manual retrieval of foal was not successful due to inadequate space in the birth canal hence it was decided to perform caesarean. Under local analgesia, caesarian section was performed and a dead male foal was delivered. Post-operative medication with regular wound dressing were undertaken and healthy recovery was observed.

      A retrospective study of bacterial wound infections and its therapeutic management through laboratory based antimicrobial susceptibility tests in dancing and racing equines was carried out. In the study, six species of aerobic and anaerobic bacteria were isolated using standard microbial protocols. S. aureus and S. epidermidis were the most prevalent bacteria contributing 45.25 percent and other species were E. coli (23.5 percent), Pseudomonas sp.(11.5 percent) and Klebsiella sp. (8 percent), Clostridium sp. (6.5 percent) and Streptococcus sp. (5.3 percent) respectively. Antibiotic sensitivity tests (ABST) were carried out employing various antibiotics and of which Oxytetracycline and Penicillin were found to be resistant with MAR index ranging from 8-23.8 percent. The wounds were treated based on ABST and effectiveness in healing was improved by prompt antibiotic selection.

      Sexed semen is the latest revolutionary breakthrough in animal reproduction industry. It is applied to produce offspring of desired sex from selected genetically superior mating parents. Commercialization of sexed sperm has gained more demand in recent years and is under implementation in some countries. Many techniques to separate the X and Y sperm based on different principles were attempted to be developed and applied, but most of them lacked any scientific validation and proved ineffective. Flow-cytometric sorting of semen is the most recent development of sperm sexing with effective and promising results. Sexing of semen was founded on the principle of variation in DNA content between X and Y spermatozoa, with X spermatozoa carrying more DNA than Y spermatozoa. However, this technology is hindered by several factors like high costs, skilled and experienced manpower requirement and varying pregnancy rates as compared with traditional semen, along with more factors. Progress to impr

      In order to develop Artificial Insemination (AI) as a tool for breeding of camels, research study was initiated on collection and preservation of camel semen. Four adult Omani male camels were trained for semen collection using artificial vagina (AV). Regular collections were undertaken at 3-7 days intervals and ejaculates were subjected to quality evaluation, extension and preservation under refrigeration. A total of 178 ejaculates were collected in 197 attempts. Reaction time was less than 30 seconds and mean mating duration was 5.08+0.14 minutes. Semen volume was 4.5+0.22 ml and contamination with extraneous particles was very frequent (54 percent). About 50 percent ejaculates were sperm rich with mean concentration of 364.66+34.51 millions/ ml. Ejaculates transformed into thick gel within five minutes of collection and 57.83 percent of them liquefied within thirty minutes of extension. Triladyl egg yolk media was mostly used for extension and gentle agitation with plastic straw was

      Bilateral mandibular fractures were recorded in seven male camels due to biting during rut season in five, while it was accidental and unknown reason in one camel each. The site of fracture was rostral to canine tooth (4), rostral to premolars (1) and one each in between 2nd and 3rd, 3rd and 5th cheek teeth. The fractures were stabilised with bilateral interdental wiring in three camels, combination of bilateral intramedullary pinning and wiring in two camel, unilateral intramedullary pinning and bilateral wiring in one camel and pinning only in one camel. Bilateral mandibular fracture in adult male camels can be well managed using composite intramedullary pinning and interdental wiring with minimum complications.

      485 Kuchchhi camels with digestive disorders were examined with metal detector to confirm ferrous origin metallic body in lower abdomen. Thirty (30) camels showed positive results and blood samples were collected for blood trypsin inhibitor spot test (TIST). Amongst those, 14 camels showed positive results for TIST and hemato-biochemical estimation was evaluated. Hematology revealed lower hemoglobin, erythrocytopenia, increased PCV, leukocytosis with neutrophilia and biochemical findings indicated hypoglycemia, hypoproteinemia with rise of lactate dehydrogenase, creatine kinase and aspartate aminotransferase. Laparo-rumenotomy was performed in three camel which did not responded to medical management. Use of metal detector test and TIST combined with altered hemato-biochemical values may give better understanding of traumatic reticulo-peritonitis in camels.

      Sudden onset of diarrhea was observed in 10 (21.73%) neonatal camel calves aged between five to ten days in an organised camel farm. The feces of diarrheic calves were foul smelling, watery or pasty and pale yellow to greenish yellow coloured yellow to greenish yellow with occasional presence of flecks of fibrin and blood. The hematological parameters revealed no significant variations. The fecal culture from diarrheic calves on Mac Conkey and EMB agar revealed presence of Escherichia coli colonies which were further confirmed by uidA gene PCR and sequencing. The antimicrobial sensitivity test of all the ten isolates revealed high susceptibility for Ceftriaxone and Cefotaxime; intermediate susceptibility for Amoxicillin/Sulbactum, Gentamicin, Amikacin, Trimethoprim and Rifampicin; whereas resistance was recorded for Cloxacillin and Lincomycin. In addition six isolates also revealed resistance for Penicillin G, Amoxicillin, Enrofloxacin and Tetracycline. Our findings showed importance o
