Abstract

Camel is the only mode of transport in desert. In Gujarat 0.058 million camel population is there. Camel suffers from a number of important diseases viz., mange infestations which is a serious problem in many parts of the world and poses a major problem to camel health. No systemic data is available on the diseases prevailing in the rural camel populations or their off springs maintained in rural households. Blood samples of infected (n=13) and healthy camels (n=13) were collected from different regions. The present study was conducted to know the haematological and biochemical alterations in camel during mange infestation. Data shows that mange infestation significantly affect level of haematological and biochemical parameters.
