Abstract:
The objective of the present study was to evaluate the radiographic and ultrasonographic changes in cattle and buffaloes suffering from foreign body induced reticular affections. The study was conducted in a total of 12 clinical cases of cattle and buffaloes presented to the Department of Veterinary Surgery and Radiology, Veterinary College, Bidar and referral hospitals of Karnataka state. The clinical cases were divided into group I and group II consisting of 6 cattle and 6 buffaloes respectively. Clinical signs dehydration, rumination, tympany, urination, defecation, water intake, scanty faeces and cautious gait were recorded in both the groups. Both group I and group II groups were subjected to clinical, haemato-biochemical followed by radiographic and ultrasonographic screening to confirm the presence of reticular affections like traumatic reticulitis, traumatic reticuloperitonitis, reticular abscess, reticular adhesions, and diaphragmatic hernia due to the presence of metallic foreign body. All the animals showed varying degree of reduced appetite, water intake, defecation, rumination. Clinical examination showed normal heart rate, increased respiratory rate, increased rectal temperature and reduced ruminal motility. Haemato-biochemical estimation revealed anemia, marked neutrophilia, lymphocytopenia, eosinopenia, leucocytosis, hyperproteinemia and normal ALT.
