Author(s):
G Shanmuga Priya, G Prakash and RS Kathiravan
Abstract:
A four years old Holstein Friesian crossbred cow presented with the history of hard swelling on the mandibular region with open mouth breathing and excessive salivation. On observation and examination, the case was tentatively diagnosed as Bovine Actinomycosis. Pus was completely drained from the excised cavity and adjunct therapy of broad-spectrum antibiotic was administered intramuscularly for five days as a post-operative measure along with oral administration of potassium iodide. The healing was complete in 20 days with no recurrence and untoward consequences.
