Abstract:
A five-year-old Holstein Friesian crossbred cow was presented to the Teaching Veterinary Clinical Complex, College of Veterinary Sciences and Animal Husbandry, Selesih with a history of haemagalactia for one month. The animal was treated in a local veterinary dispensary but no improvement was noticed. As per owner, there was no abnormality in appetite, urination and defecation. Clinical examination revealed that all the vital parameters were within the normal range. The udder was found to be in normal size and consistency. California mastitis test (CMT) was found to be negative and culture of milk did not yield any bacterial growth. Centrifugation of milk sample revealed the presence of intact red blood cells. Haemato-biochemical parameters were within the normal range and peripheral blood smear was negative for haemoprotozoan and rickettsial diseases. Based on the history, clinical examination and laboratory findings, the condition was diagnosed as haemagalactia. The cow was treated with Inj. Tranexamic acid @ 5 mg/kg BW, IV, SID along with adrenaline (intramammary) and serratiopeptidase (PO) for 5 days. Improvement in condition was noticed on the fourth day and complete recovery was noticed after five days.
