In a study of 24 anemic cows, which were screened for hemoparasites during the year 2017, 10 were found to have Theileria sp. and among that 6 animals were found to have highly positive and those cows were also severe anemic. Owners failed to report for treatment in a timely manner, and all six cows finally acquired anaemia. Point of care hematology revealed reduced hemoglobin, Packed cell volume and total erythrocyte counts. A single dose of inj. Buparvaquone was given to all of the animals @ 2.5 mg/ kg i/m on the day of presensentation along with oxytetracycline @10mg/kg body weight. Studies in the field of hemotherapy for ruminants are scarce, particularly in relation to blood conservation and responses to transfusion. Based on the laboratory and clinical findings, subsequently all the 6 animals were managed with the aid of whole blood transfusion and other supportive treatment.
