This study aimed to investigate the safety and efficacy of Chinese medicine SH mixture on respiratory tract inflammation induced by herpesvirus. The clinical symptoms, mortality and incidence were observed to evaluate the preventive and therapeutic effects of SH mixture on infectious laryngotracheitis (ILT) in peacocks. Administration of SH mixture noticeably improved the clinical symptoms and decreased the mortality associated with ILT in peacocks. SH mixture also had a significant preventive effect on ILT. The results suggest that SH mixture has preventative and therapeutic effects on respiratory inflammation caused by herpesvirus. Improvement of immune and hematopoietic functions is possibly involved in its protective mechanism.
