The present study ‘’Therapeutic Management of Sub Clinical Mastitis in Cows’’ was undertaken to study the bacteriogram of the milk isolates and therapeutic efficacy of two different antibiotics. A total of 20 cows (33 quarters) were selected for the present study and In vitro drug sensitivity test was conducted on sub clinically positive whole milk cultures of which, highest sensitivity was shown to Ceftriaxone (89.83%) followed Amoxyclav (81.36%), Enrofloxacin (77.97%), Gentamicin (71.19%), Amikacin (54.23%), Chloramphenicol (50.84%), Tetracycline (44.06%) and least to Penicillin G (8.47%). For therapeutic trials a total of 20 cows with subclinical mastitis were randomly divided into two groups i.e., group II and group III with 10 cows in each. An apparently healthy control group of 10 cows (which were culturally negative) was also included in the present study. Cows of group II were treated with Ceftriaxone whereas cows of group III were treated with Amoxicillin-Cloxacillin.
