Haematological changes in sheep experimentally infected with Trypanosoma evansi

Abstract

Sheep were infected with Trypanosoma evansi TREU 2143 through the external jugular vein. The parasite kinetics as well as the effects on body temperature, packed cell volume (PCV), erythrocyte counts and total and differential white blood cell counts were monitored twice weekly for 3 months. The results showed that T. evansi produced a chronic form of the disease in sheep characterised by low-level and often cryptic parasitaemia, with self-cure occurring in two cases; mild anaemia as evidenced by decreases in PCV and erythrocyte counts; and significant (P
