Abstract

Information on Haemorrhagic Septicaemia (HS) in bovines (1995-98) was obtained from 237
veterinary surgeons working in all ninteen districts of Haryana through a questionnaire and analysed using student's 't' test and Pearson's multiple correlation. Besides, eleven HS outbreaks were also investigated during 1998-99. The prevalence of HS in buffaloes and cattle was low (0.31 and 0.25%, respectively), but case fatality rate (CFR) was high (58.90 and 38.94%, respectively). The CFR was significantly (Pled that majority of organisms were sensitive to enrofloxacin, gentamicin and chloramphenicol and resistant to sulphadimidine and oxytetracycline. Annual economic loss due to HS in buffaloes in Haryana was estimated around Rs. 58 millions.
