Dear colleagues,

This is a case of a 6000 layers flock, 36 weeks of age. 1.5 months ago the flock was suspected and tested for salmonellosis which came out to be positive. The flock was treated with gentamicin and bcomplex injection for 3 consecutive days. The mortality was reduced for a few days but then it increased again. The post mortem lesions show extremely fragile liver and blackish necrotic mucosa at the duodenal part. Copper sulphate and vinegar was given in drinking water but mortality was not controlled, 15-20 per day.

Please suggest me the best measure for controlling mortality.

Most probably, it is a case of Fatty Liver Syndrome.

Possible causes could be:
Deficiency of Lipotropic factors (choline, methionin & Vit. B-12).
Excessive feed intake due to low protein and high energy.
Presence of high levels of Mycotoxins & Molds in feed.

Possible control measures:-
Addition of these items(additional) / ton of feed: CuSo4 = 60 gm, Choline chloride =500 gm, DL-Methionine= 500 gm, Vit B-12= 3 ug & Vit E= 5000 i.u. till recovery of problem.

For immediate relief, a good liver tonic via D/Water 3-5 days, prior to add the above items shall be beneficial.

Increase 1-2 % protein in feed.

Every body is trying to control the diseases with synthetic drugs and with antibiotics which cause the problem to the end user. and costly affair .Why you are all not trying with Herbal like Kirathiktha ,Tippa tega and Bhumyamlaki ,Aromatic oils like Clove oil,Eucalyptus oil, Natural C vitamin like Indian Gooseberry, Bakuchi seeds which develope immune system , effective in liver functioning and control bacteria .Ultimately no drug residue and Echofree. Lot of research to be done on Natural products for controlling the diseases by which world will become free from Cancer causing chemicals.

I agree with Dr. Ahmed Din Anjum. Whenever, I have such a case, I shall take the samples and send them for a patho histological examination. I shall do a culture of the BLACKISH mesentery. For layers, any antibiotic treatment will mean to destroy the eggs during the period of treatment and the withdrawal period. It is a big loss to the farmer. The problem of Salmonella in layers is a serious issue. I hope that the situation is now under control.

Also, please check Mycotoxicosis

Fragile livers are due to mycotoxicosis,fowl cholera,hence depending on the laboratory examination,treatment should be followed.
For treatment of liver recovery ayurvedic and herbal products can be tried without any p>roblem.In case of fowl cholera antibiotics such as pencillin streptomycin combination should be used to control the problem.
