Haemato- Biochemical and Electrolyte Changes in Naturally Occurring Theileria Associated Bovine Anaemia (Taba)

The goal of this study was to see how haematology and serum electrolytes changed in cows that were naturally infected with theileriosis. In the study, 102 crossbred cows aged 2 to 5 years were screened and analysed. Twelve of them were discovered to be naturally afflicted with theileria. A control group of twelve animals of the same age and appearance were kept. When compared to non-anemic (healthy) cattle, haematological parameters of haemoglobin, packed cell volume, total erythrocyte count, mean corpuscular volume, and mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration were considerably (p 0.05) lower in anaemic cattle. In this investigation, electrolyte balance comparisons revealed a significant drop in sodium and ionised calcium concentrations in anaemic mice as compared to the control group at the p0.05 level. Differences in blood potassium and total calcium levels, on the other hand, were not statistically significant (p>0.05). When biochemical values were examined, anaemic animals had a substantial increase (p 0.05) in blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and creatinine levels, but a significant decrease (p 0.05) in total protein and albumin concentrations. These findings revealed a bleak picture of circulating blood in animals suffering from theileria-related anaemia.
