ABSTRACT
 

A total of 100-quarter milk samples were collected from 25 lactating she camels in sterilised test tubes and were subjected to Culture test, California Mastitis Test (CMT), Somatic Cell Count (SCC), pH, and Electrical Conductivity(EC) test before giving the treatment and then after fourth day following the treatment course to study the therapeutic efficacy of enrofloxacin as systemic therapy alone and in combination with levamisole in subclinical mastitis in camel. Treatment both with enrofloxacin alone and in combination with levamisole was effective in controling subclinical mastitis in camel but the use of levamisole did not seem to increase the therapeutic efficacy of Enrofloxacin significantly.
Key words : Camel, enrofloxacin, levamisole, subclinical mastitis, therapeutic efficacy
