Etiopathology of mortality in Indian lesser cats at Nandankanan Biological Park

Etiopathology of mortality in Indian lesser cats at Nandankanan Biological Park

Analysis of data in relation to etiopathology of mortality in 109 Indian lesser cats of 5 species namely clouded leopard, golden cat, Jungle cat, fishing cat and leopard cat carried out during 1961-1989 revealed that highest mortality occurred in first year of life (73.5%) particularly during neonatal period (46%) mostly due to cannibalism and maternal rejection. Other important causes included pneumonia, nephritis, traumatic injuries and heat stress. A number of helminthic and protozoan parasites were recovered from tissues and faeces.
