No record of lice (Pthiraptera) distribution and abundance in traditionally managed Buffalo and Cattle in Rawalakot Azad Kashmir Pakistan

Asim Shamim, Anisa Mushtaq, Murtaz ul Hassan

The present study intention was to ascertain the information regarding distribution and abundance of louse infestation in cattle and buffaloes managed traditionally at domestic levels in Tehsil Rawalakot of District Poonch, Azad Kashmir during winter season. Simple random sampling method was followed to collect louse specimen from cattle and buffaloes with the prior consent of owners. Approximately 200 animals of both cattle and buffaloes were screened during the study period but no animal was found louse infested that resulted zero percent prevalence of louse in the study area. This is probably first attempt to report on louse distribution and abundance in cattle and buffaloes raised traditionally in the area representing that the area climate is not suitable for the survival of louse in cattle and buffaloes. Further, detail investigative cross sectional studies are suggestive in the area.
