The present study was conducted to determine the
occurrence of two viral and one bacterial
disease in four Tahsils of Khairpur District during June 2014-June 2015. The study was conduct on the clinical
signs, symptoms and postmortem examination. The data were collected randomly; five farms were selected from
Khairpur District. The results shows high mortality rate in all Tahsils were
observed (1.17%) due to IBD from all Tahsils followed by ND (1.13%) as, highest
number of birds affected (1.84%) due to IBD and ND shows
(1.77%) while birds survived (0.67%), (0.63%) from IBD and ND. While bacterial
disease Coryza shows (2.40%), (1.54%), (0.85%) birds affected, died and
survived respectively in all Tahsils during
the study period. The total number of
birds affected due to IBD are 685 followed by N.D 674 and while bacterial
Coryza showed 861 and total number of
birds survived to IBD are 249 followed by ND 242 and while Infectious Coryza
307 from the study areas.
