Hypocalcemia (Milk fever) in buffalo: A case report

Sweety and Pradeep Kumar
A 6 year old buffalo was presented with left lateral recumbency with the neck curved towards the flank. Buffalo had calved two months ago and was semi-intensively managed. The daily production of milk was about 13 litres. The temperature and pulse rate were within the normal range, but there was increase in respiratory rate and a dehydration status of 5%. Auscultation of heart revealed that there was decrease in intensity of the heart sound. The buffalo was diagnosed with milk fever and treatment was done by slowly infusing 400 mL of Calcium borogluconate into the jugular vein. Intravenous infusion of 2000 mL 0.9% NaCl and 1000 mL of 5% Glucose were instituted in order to restore blood glucose level and to correct the dehydration. The animal recovered after the treatment, thus the prognosis was good.
