Awareness lecture on lumpy skin disease
With lumpy skin disease (LSD) hitting the livestock, especially milch animals all over Punjab, experts at the Khalsa College of Veterinary and Animal Sciences (KCVAS) on Friday suggested precautions and control. In an awareness lecture, the experts said the infectious viral disease was growing among cattle, cows and buffaloes and it is transmitted by mosquitoes, biting flies and ticks. The disease is characterized by mild fever for two to three days followed by the development of stiff, round cutaneous nodules on the skin all over the body. The symptoms may include lesions in the mouth, pharynx and respiratory tract, emaciation, enlarged lymph nodes, oedema of limbs, reduction in milk production, abortion and sometimes death. Although infected animals often recover within a period of two to three weeks, there is reduction in milk yield in lactating cattle for several weeks. Principal, KCVAS, Dr Harish K Verma said administration of antibiotics for five to seven days to check secondary infection may be considered and application of antiseptic ointment with fly repellent on the eroded skin is recommended. He said the college was ready to provide any help to the farmers and cattle owners in case of need as the management has decided to set up the help desk where vets could be reached at phone no. 62834-29117. thanks
