S Bano, PR Aziz, S Marodia and KK Kamal
The research was conducted in Nal area of Bikaner district of Rajasthan State of India. The animals reared here are buffaloes and cross-bred cattle. The animals are mainly fed on dry roughages with limited access to green grasses. A total of 15 (10 buffaloes and 5 cows) animals which were suffering from impaction were taken into study. The animals were having severe abdominal pain and were also consuming less amount of water. On palpation of the para-lumbar fossa, there was low or absence of rumino-reticular movements. There was drop in fecal excretion in some animals while few had tight fecal material. All the animals were also examined per-rectally which revealed tightness of the rumen. The rectum had few pellet like fecal material which was very dry. Powdered form of the fruit and root of the C. colocynthis was administered to the animals orally @25 gm/100 kg BW for five days. After 3-4 days of consuming the powder the animals were relieved of the impaction.
