Abstract:Four groups of six Holstein calves were inoculated with 3.6 × 10 7 erythrocytes parasitized with Anaplasma marginale. The criteria for treatment of calves were increasing A. marginale rickettsemia and 30% reduction of baseline packed cell volume (PCV) of each animal. Group 1 (G1) received 7.5 mg.kg -1 of enrofloxacin in a single dose; Group 2 (G2) 7.5 mg.kg -1 of enrofloxacin twice every three days; Group 3 (G3) 20 mg.kg -1 of long-acting oxytetracycline in a single dose; and Group 4 (G4) a single dose of PBS.… Show more
