Author(s): Krishan Kumar Yadav, Devendra Kumar Gupta, Pratibha Sharma, Manju Sahu and Sachin Kamboj
Abstract: The present study was conducted to know the therapeutic efficacy of drugs against ehrlichiosis in dog population in and around Jabalpur, (M.P.) A total of 4875 dogs (2925 male and 1950 female) were screened which were presented at Veterinary Clinical Complex (V.C.C.), College of Veterinary Science and Animal Husbandry, N.D.V.S.U., Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh, from July 2021 to December 2021. Among dog population, 207 dogs (110 male and 97 female) exhibited clinical signs suspected of ehrlichiosis. The therapeutic trial revealed that the most efficacious regimen was elicited by treatment group G2 (Doxycycline), followed by G3 (Rifampicin) and lowest in G4 (Crotalus horridus) due to improvement in the general condition of dogs after 21 days of treatment which was based on restoration of haemato-biochemical values towards normalcy and blood smear examination (Ehrlichia negative).
