Evaluation of surra treatment strategies attacking horses and buffaloes in East Sumba District, Nusa Tenggara Timur Province of Indonesia (2010 – 2016)

This paper was written by a lecturer at the Department of Economics (Dr. Sri Mulatsih) along with the other lecturer and their student, and published in a SINTA-accredited national journal (Jurnal Ilmu Ternak dan Veteriner vol 24 no 1). In this paper, the authors evaluate the effectiveness of Surra treatment strategies in East Sumba District from 2010-2016. The treatment strategy of Surra in East Sumba was divided into 2 (two) periods e.g. the first period in 2010-2011 using Isomethamedium as the single drug (period I) and the second period in 2012 – 2016 using a combination between diminazene aceturate as curative and isomethamedium as a prophylactic drug (period II). The authors found that the treatment strategy using a combination between isometamedium and diminazene aceturate in East Sumba District might be more effective compared to using isometamedium alone.
