Dairy animals play an essential role in the Indian economy. Skin wounds in domestic livestock could have very adverse effects to health, particularly in countries with emerging economies. These animals are more pre-disposed to wounds. If we neglect its management of the wounds, it may lead to secondary bacterial infections and in some rare cases, death may occur. In addition, holistic wound management practices could also contribute to the risk of infections or impaired wound healing of the animal. Understanding the pattern of wounds in bovine can aid in strategizing the required options for treatment and prognosis. This study examined four different buffaloes suffering from wounds, such as lacerated wound, maggot wound, burns and dog bite wounds. Based on the occurrence and pattern of the wound infections, age and weight, animals are subjected to conservative methods. Buffaloes are treated with antibiotics, anti-inflammatory agents and topical appliances. The wounds were observed till they were completely healed. Post-treatment observation had concluded that the prevalence of wound infection decreased and all the animals were recovered without any complications.
