Trypanosoma evansi infection also called Surra is a common haemoprotozoan disease of equines in Pakistan. Clinical symptoms (intermittent fever, anaemia and in coordination on walking) and epidemiological feature (e.g, association of disease with summer and rainy season) are sufficiently characteristic to enable the veterinarians to diagnose the disease without resorting to laboratory tests. The present report highlights the consequences of overlooking these features and documents the successful treatment of surra using on inexpensive drug viz, diminazine in a draught donkey.
