Abstract: A cross sectional study was carried out in the Upazilla Veterinary Hospital of the Raiganj Upazilla under Sirajganj District to estimate the prevalence of FMD among vaccinated cattle as well as to evaluate some risk factors for the occurrence. A total of 198 cattle were observed where 122 were males and 76 were females. Among the 198, a total of 70 cattle were suffering with fever, frothy salivation, stomatitis and necrosis in inter digital space where 47 were males and 23 were females. Among 70 animals 26 were vaccinated and 44 were not. The overall prevalence was estimated as 37%. Some factors like occupation of the owner, type of cattle, age, and animal source etc. showed a considerable difference in prevalence. However, none of the association was ended up significant might be due to a low sample size. The knowledge gathered through this study might be used as a baseline information to structure an extended study with a required number of sample to identify potential risk factors for the occurrence of FMD in vaccinated cattle and to conduct the control measure more efficiently.
