Diagnosis of reticular abscess in buffaloes: A review
Madan Pal and Rishi Tayal
Abscess formation adjacent to reticulum is considered as one of the squeal of the hardware disease. Some of pre-reticular abscesses are recorded firmly attached to the reticulum and located at or above the ventral floor of the reticulum. The general signs of indigestion including anorexia, ruminal tympany, scanty faeces, reduced milk production and atonized rumen are considered shared signs between different gastrointestinal disturbances especially those of reticulo-rumen origin like traumatic reticuloperitonitis and peri-reticular abscescess. The condition is difficult to diagnose only on the basis of clinical signs and symptoms. The radiography could not be an effective tool for diagnosis of this condition. However, imaging technique like ultrasonography could be of high diagnostic value in detecting reticular abscess in buffaloes.
