Abstract

    Two hundred and fifty samples of mesenteric lymph nodes were collected from goats of Damani and Teddy breeds slaughtered at Dera Ismail Khan slaughter  house. Each of these samples was triturated and vigorously shaken with sterilized normal saline and the suspension was centrifuged. The supernatant was subjected to counter immunoelectrophoresis with Peste des petits ruminants hyperimmune serum. Out of 250 samples, 47.34% samples of Damani and 43% of Teddy goats were positive for peste des petits ruminants. In both the breeds, 47.05% males and 42.50% females were positive. Agewise results showed that young animals gave higher positive percentages than old ones.  

Key words: Peste des petits ruminants, lymph nodes, goats.
