Efficacy of pottasium permangnate (KmNo4) medicated drinking water at graded concentration of 1, 0.1, 0.01 and 0.001 percent in the control of experimental S. Gallinarum infection in day-old broiler chicks was assesed. The chicks were randomly distributed in 6 groups (1 to 6) of 10 birds each. Day old chicks in first 4 groups (1 to 4) were given drinking water medicated with KmNo4 at concentration of 1, 0.1, 0.01 and 0.001 pecent, respectively. The birds were simultaniously infected through feed contaminated with live S. Gallinarum at rate of 10E8 organisms per gram of feed. Sixteen days post infection (PI) results revealed no mortality in chicks from 1, 0.1 and 0.01 percent KmNo4 groups as well as from uninfected control group (group 6) while 40% chicks in infected control group (group 5) and 20% chicks in 0.001 percent KmNo4 group died. S. gallinarum was isolated from all dead birds. The resuls of the study suggested that KmNo4 at lower concentrations in drinking water can be used for effective control of fowl typhoid in large scale poultry rearing.
