Serum protein and electrolyte levels during trypanosome infection and following treatment in the West African dwarf goat

Serum protein and electrolyte levels during trypanosome infection and following treatment in the West African dwarf goat

Bulletin of Animal Health and Production in Africa 37(1): 41-45

Serum protein and electrolyte concentrations were monitored in West African dwarf goats undergoing experimentally-induced Trypanosoma vivax infection and following administration of the trypanocides diminazene aceturate(Berenil), isometamidium chloride(Samorin) and homidium chloride(Novidium). Total serum protein, albumin and albumin/globulin ratio decreased significantly within 4 weeks of patent trypanosomiasis.
