Abstract:
A Holstein Friesian crossbred cow maintained at Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Trichy was presented with a history of normal appetite, rumination and defecation but unable to stand. On examination, the physiological parameters were in the normal range. The animal had the urge to get up at times even though it was in sternal recumbency. The blood sample was taken to check the serum calcium and phosphorus. The animal was assisted to stand in slings thrice daily. During that time the hot water massage was provided to all the four limbs of the animal. The position on the animal was changed periodically in order to prevent bed sores. After 18 days of prompt treatment the animal stood up with full recovery and given birth to heifer calf after ten days.
