The goal of this study was to determine the frequency of surgical affections and their associated risk factors in new born calves from the Mollahat, Fakhirhat, and Bagerhat Sadar upazilas of Bagerhat district. From 2015 to 2019, 5238 retrospective data were collected in all three upazilas. The surgical affections were categorized on the basis of se...

Surgical affections are frequent in goats, and they have a significant detrimental impact on the animals' development, production, and survivorship, resulting in significant financial losses. The current study assessed the prevalence of surgical affections and the risk factors associated with the occurrence of surgical affections in goats at Alamda...
Article
Global climate changes increase the risk of salinization of soil and water imposing possible health risks on livestock, especially in arid and semi-arid regions such as the Andes, the habitat of wild and domestic South American camelids (SAC), e.g. the llama (Lama glama). The aim of the present study was to evaluate the sensitivity and tolerance of...

The present investigation was carried out on rabbits to find out the comparative effects of border plant (Red Bush) and curcumin on morphological changes in wound healing. General anesthesia was done before creating experimental wounds of 20 mm length and 5 mm depth one in either side of the paralumber region. Rabbits were randomly divided into thr...

Shahjadpur dairy area of Sirajganj district plays a significant role to meet the demand for milk in Bangladesh. However, due to foot diseases the farmers face a considerable amount of economic loss. The study was carried out to determine the prevalence of foot diseases in cattle and also to explore the risk factors having a promoting role in develo...
Article
To examine the adaptive physiological responses to increasing salinity of drinking water in a choice situation, twelve female non-lactating Boer goats were used. After a control period with fresh water, in phase 2 the choice between different salt concentrations (0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1.0, 1.25 and 1.5% NaCl) and tap water was offered for two weeks. Sub...
Article
Salinization of groundwater and soil is a prevalent global issue with serious consequences on animal health and production. The present study was conducted to investigate the capacity of Boer goats to adjust their salt intake from saline drinking water in a free-choice system. In total, 12 non-pregnant Boer goats aged between 1 and 8 years with an...

Due to global climatic changes, water and soil salinization is an increasing worldwide phenomenon, thus creating new threats for farm animal production. The present study was designed to investigate the adaptation capacity of goats towards sodium chloride (NaCl) in drinking water. Twelve non-pregnant Boer goats with an average body weight of 50.5 ±...

Knowledge on water intake in South American camelids is very limited. There are anecdotal reports on Guanacos, the wild ancestor of the llamas, drinking saline water (Darwin, 1844). No studies are available on taste responses and thresholds for taste discrimination for sodium chloride in drinking water in llamas. The aim of our study was to investi...
Conference Paper
Due to global climatic changes, salinization of ground water and soil is an increasing worldwide phenomenon, thus creating new threats for farm animal production. Although sodium chloride salt (NaCl) is essential for regulating body water content, muscle and nerve functions and nutrient absorption, excessive long term salt intake may affect feed an...
Conference Paper
Bangladesh is one of the frontline victims of global climate change. Among the impacts of climate change, increased salinity intrusion, particularly, in the southern coastal belts of the country endangers flora and fauna. This is also enforcing the local livestock population to adapt with increased water and soil salinity. This study investigates t...

The effects of analgesic and anaesthetic drugs on high epidural analgesia in Black Bengal goats were investigated. The animals were divided into five groups (n=8) and a replication of 8 trials was performed in each group at least one week interval. Two percent (2%) lidocaine hydrochloride, 0.5% bupivacaine hydrochloride, 2% lidocaine hydrochloride...
