Abstract

A study was conducted at Babugonj upazilla under the district of Barishal in Bangladesh during the period from 1st December, 2020 to 29th April, 2021. To determine the prevalence and therapeutic efficiency of Peste des Petits Ruminants in goat. A total number of 523 diseases cases were recorded randomly irrespective of age ,sex ,and breed over the study period, among them 118 case were clinically diagnosed as Peste des Petits Ruminants. The overall prevalence of Peste des Petits Ruminants in goat was 22.56%.
