 ABSTRACT

Polymerase chain reaction technique was employed to identify the meat species of dried animals tissue like trachea, oesophagus, ligamentum nuchae, penis, ears obtained from meat processing plants which are used as pet chews for feeding of pet animals. The simultaneous detection of both the species cattle and buffalo at a time was achieved by conducting duplex polymerase chain reaction. Using mitochondrial sequences, species specific primers of cyt b gene was used for cattle and buffalo primer at 274 bp and 425 bp respectively. All the samples screened were tested positive for buffalo species which could be due to the ban of cow slaughter and it’s processing in India.

Key words: Pet chews, Cyt b gene, Cattle, Buffalo.
