The aim of this study is to compare the treatment effectiveness of two different fungal vaccines on Anatolian buffaloes with trichophytosis. 40 Anatolian buffaloes with ranging ages from 4 months to 4 years were divided into two groups after being clinically and microbiologically diagnosed as trichophytosis. 10 cc of intra muscular (IM) Trichoben (Bioveta) was applied to Group I (n=20) while 10 cc of IM LTF 130 (Stavropolskaya Biofabrika) was applied to Group II (n=20). In group I, improvement started after the vaccine was applied twice in every 14 days, and in group II, the improvement started after the vaccine was applied 4 times in every 14 days. Following the vaccine application in group I, the lesions on the skin disappeared and hairing started on the 40th day, however, in group II this happened on the 65th day. While both vaccines cured this disease in Anatolian buffaloes with trichophytosis, the improvement in group I happened faster than group II.  As a result, we think that vaccination will be beneficial for the treatment of Anatolian buffaloes with Trichophytosis.
