Keywords:Prevalence, clinical diseases, menifestation, goats, cattle, Chittagong
Teaching Veterinary Hospital (TVH) in Chittagong Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (CVASU) plays an important role of public service to animal welfare since the period of 1996. There are lots of goats and cattle are recorded in this hospital every year but previously no report published on it. So this research was conducted to determine the prevalence of clinical diseases and manifestations of goats and cattle recorded at TVH in CVASU during the period of January to December 2012. A total of 3090 clinical cases (goats 2778 and cattle 312) were registered. Diagnosis of these clinical diseases and disorders were based on clinical history, clinical sign and different lab test. Medicinal cases constituted highest percentage (goats 74.66% and cattle 66.35%) in comparison to surgical (goats 16.84% and cattle 24.04 %) cases and gynae-obstetrical (goats 8.50% and cattle 9.62%) cases. Among the (1) medicinal cases, highest percentage was recorded with the diseases of digestive system (goats 16.85% and cattle 20.83%) followed by parasitic diseases (goats 15.22% and cattle 12.82%), infectious diseases (goats 11.95% and cattle 12.18%), general systemic states (goats 7.91% and cattle 6.73%), disease of the respiratory system (goats 9.57% and cattle 4.16%), urinary system(goats 3.31% and cattle 1.28%), special sense organs (goats 3.99% and cattle 1.28%) and noninfectious diseases (goats 5.83% and cattle 4.17%). Among of the (2) surgical cases, general surgery (goats 11.77 and cattle 16.58%) was higher in percentage than special (goats 3.31% and cattle 3.20%) and orthopedic (goats 1.76% and cattle 3.85%) surgery. Among of the gynae-obstetrical cases, gynaecological disorders were recorded higher (goats 6.98% and cattle 8.33%) than obstetrical disorders (goats 1.51% and cattle 1.28%). Prevalence of clinical diseases and disorders were analyzed on the basis of age, sex, breed and season. P-value (P?0.05) was considered as significant. So that an appropriate control strategy has to be designed and applied, which helps to prevent of these disease conditions in study area.
