Cite article:- Shridhar N.B. (2023). TOXICITY OF IMIDACLOPRID IN BUFFALOES. Indian Journal of Animal Research. 44(3): 224 - 225. doi: .
The present study revealed the natural toxicity of a neonicotinoid insecticide imidacloprid
on buffaloes which expressed the clinical signs of frothy salivation, in-coordination to move,
stiff gait and dyspnoea. The haematological parameters like haemoglobin, packed cell volume
(PCV), total erythrocyte count (TEC), total leucocyte count (TLC) and differential leucocyte
counts(DLC) were not altered in the affected animals. There was no change in the concentrations
of serum creatinine, blood urea nitrogen (BUN) except a slight increase in aspartate
aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT) concentrations
