KB Choudhury, BC Debnath, K Ravikanth, *A Thakur, S Maini

ABSTRACT

Diarrhoea or scours in piglets can be common at both the neonatal and the post-weaning stage. A trial was conducted to evaluate efficacy of polyherbal antidiarrhoeal and gut function modulator Salcochek (supplied by m/s Ayurvet Ltd. Baddi, HP, India) in reducing incidence of post weaning diarrhoea and mortality rate in weaned piglets. A total of 25 White Yorkshire piglets irrespective of sex of approximately 1 month of age were included in the trial and were divided in 5 different groups. Group T1 piglets were treated with Ciprofloxacin –Tinidazole tab @ 10mg/kg body wt., group T2 were treated with mixture of Salcocheck premix @ 500 g/tonne of feed and Ciprofloxacin-Tinidazole tab @ 10mg/kg body wt., group T3 piglets were treated with [email protected]/tonne of feed. Treatment was given in all the groups for 3- 5days depending upon severity of condition. Group T4 was positive control, comprising of diarrhoeac piglets given no treatment, group T5 was negative control, comprising healthy piglet without any history of diarrhoea. Parameters recorded were body weight gain (Kg), mortality, colour and consistency of faeces, clinical observation of piglets, number and duration of treatment. Significantly better results in term of clinical observations, recovery rate, duration and number of treatment were obtained in groups T3 and T2 as compared to group T1 and untreated group T4. No mortality was recorded in polyherbal treated groups and negative control group as compared to 20% and 60 % mortality in group T1 and T4 respectively. The body weight gain was significantly high in Salcochek treated groups T2 and T3 as compared to T1 and T4. From the results of the present study it can be concluded that polyherbal formulation Salcochek is efficacious in prevention and treatment of post weaning diarrhea in piglets along with improvement in growth of piglets.

Keywords: antidiarrhoeal, gut modulator, mortality, polyherbal, weaning.
