Officials of Department of Animal Husbandry carried out disinfection and sanitisation drive at our gaushala today. This drive was a part of a campaign to prevent spreading of Lumpy Skin Disease, which is a viral infection that affects cattle and buffaloes.
The disease is spread via bites of bugs that feed on blood, like mosquitoes, ticks, and biting flies. Lumpy Skin Disease has been a concern in northern India, with many animals infected and dying of it. Symptoms of this disease in cattle include fever, loss of appetite, lesions on skin, ulcers on udders, among many others.
The officials today also gave injections of Ivermectin, an anti-parasitic drug, to cattle, and the animals will be given vaccination of Lumpy Skin Disease soon.
In case of any queries about this disease and its spread, contact your local Veterinary Doctor, or your local office of Department of Animal Husbandry.
