Seropositivity of bovine herpes virus type 1, bovine respiratory syncytial virus and bovine parainfluenza type 3 viruses was determined in 41 cattle presented to large animal hospital, GADVASU with respiratory diseases and 25 cattle were kept as control animals. The seropositivity of BoHV-1, BRSV and BPIV-3 in control and diseased group was 16.0 Vs 41.5, 28.0 Vs 51.2 and 36.0 Vs 65.8 per cent, respectively. There was statistically significant difference (p<0.005) in the proportion and degree of seropositivity’s between diseased and control animals against BoHV-1 and BPIV-3. Exact role of viruses in the disease process could not be established due to non-availability of paired sera from the animals and investigation of the animals at the initial stage of the setting up of disease. Nevertheless, the present study confirms the presence of these respiratory viruses in cattle population of Punjab, India.
