The increasing emergence of wildlife diseases with the possibility to ecological threats as well as domestic animals and human health has prompted the importance of understanding disease dynamics and associated risks in biological conservation. The present study was undertaken from North Eastern part of India from January, 2017 to March, 2018 to id...
Article
The present study reports the prevalence of ecto-and endo-parasites in small wild ruminants from various NE region of India. A total of 565 wild small ruminants in captivity were examined between April 2018 to March 2019 without causing harm to them. Faecal samples were examined microscopically for detection of different Gastrointestinal (GI) paras...

India has 43 well defined cattle breeds which play important roles in its economy through milk, meat, draught power and employment generation etc. The productivity of these cattle breeds are hampered by various tick and tick borne haemoparasitic diseases (TBHD). In current study, four different cattle breeds totalling 310 cattle from different part...
Article
The prevalence of endoparasitic infections of birds in different zoological gardens in North-Eastern region of India was investigated from February 2018 to January 2019. Coprological examination included 1,275 faecal samples from 10 different species of captive birds in six zoo gardens. The prevalence of blood parasites was also carried out by exam...

Aims Canine demodicosis is a parasitic condition affecting the skin of dogs. The present study was designed to characterize chitin synthase gene of Demodex canis. The molecular technique was used for better understanding of this gene. Methods A total of 75 dogs which are reared as pets with or without showing any skin lesions were examined during...
Article
In order to detect the prevalence of tick-borne pathogens in dogs, a total of 525 dog blood samples were examined by peripheral blood examination during different seasons. The survey was carried out from July, 2017 to June, 2018 in different parts of North-Eastern (NE) regions of India. Dogs were also closely inspected on their body surface for pre...

The aim of present study was to investigate the prevalence of tick-borne haemoparasitic diseases (TBHD) infecting cattle of West Bengal, India. A total of 310 cattle were screened randomly by blood smear examination from July 2015 to June 2016. The prevalence was recorded in the context of sex and age of cattle and seasonal changes. The overall pre...

Oestrus ovis, the sheep 'nasal bot fly', somewhat looks like a honey bee, has a rudimentary mouth parts and do not feed. The larva of the sheep nasal fly is responsible for causing a condition in sheep and goat called nasal myiasis, oestriosis or 'false gid'. The disease occurs when adult fly deposit first larvae (L1) into the nostrils of its host....

The present study was conducted to determine the prevalence of haemoprotozoa in goat population of West Bengal from April 2017 to March 2018. The prevalence was studied in relation to age, sex breed of animals and seasonal changes in a year. Random blood samples were collected from both organized farms and unorganized goat farms. A total of 1053 go...

Stomoxys calcitrans (Diptera, Muscidae) is an important haematophagus fly which feeds on the blood of their animal hosts, especially livestock and occasionally on humans. Apart from their direct effects on hosts like disturbance, skin lesions, reduced feed intake, stress and blood loss, S. calcitrans acts as mechanical vectors of several bacterial,...
