Vet World. 2009; 2(4): 143-145


A study was conducted in fifty non-descript goats of 1-2 years of age, presented in Veterinary clinics of Shirval Veterinary College Maharashtra, India. Faecal and blood samples were collected from all the goats suffering from enteritis. Confirmative diagnosis of bacterial enteritis was done on the basis of bacteriological and haemato-biochemical tests. Animals were randomly divided into four (Group II to V) groups. Group I constituted of healthy animals (n= 10) (negative control), group II constituted diarrhoeic untreated animals (n=10) and Group III, IV and V (n=10) were the treatment groups. Group III animals were treated with polyherbal antidiarrhoeal formulation AV/ADC/16 @10gm BID for 4 days (coded formulation supplied by Ayurvet ltd. Baddi India), group IV treated with AV/ADC/16@15gms BID for 4 days and group V was treated with combination of AV/ADC/16 @ 10 gm and Ofloxacin @100mg BID for 4 days. In addition to clinical observations, haemato-biochemical parameters were recorded before and after treatment. The polyherbal antidiarrhoeal formulation AV/ADC/16 alone and in combination with antibiotics was found to be effective to treat diarrhoea, regain appetite and improved overall general body condition.
