Vet World. 2008; 1(9): 275-277



There were report of two cases of Trypanosomiasis in thrissur town. It is a disease complex caused by several species of blood-and tissue-dwelling protozoan parasites. It affects cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, horses, camels wild animals and man. Severity of disease varies with species and age of the animal infected and the species of trypanosome involved. Confirmation depends on demonstrating trypanosomes in stained blood smears or wet mounts.  Animals can be given drugs prophylactically in areas with an incidence. Drug resistance must be carefully monitored by frequent blood examinations for trypanosomes in treated animals.
