Abstract:
Thirty endometritic crossbred dairy cows diagnosed were randomly allotted to three groups with 10 each to evaluate the therapeutic efficacy of some non-antibiotic protocols. Cows in Group I received 30 ml ozonated oil intrauterine (i.u), Group II 500mg of oyster glycogen in 30 ml PBS i.u and Group III 30ml PBS i.u as control. Uterine flushings were collected on the day of estrus before and after treatment (next immediate estrus) and tested for pH, whiteside test, endometrial cytology and determination of common aerobic bacteria. The mean pH of uterine flushings in all the groups before treatment was 7.95. A significant reduction in mean pH was observed following treatment with ozonated oil (7.46) and oyster glycogen (7.31) whereas no significant change in the untreated cows (7.77) was recorded. Aerobic bacteria isolated in the uterus of endometritic cows were E. coli, Staphylococcus sp. Enterobacter sp. and Proteus sp. Following treatment, 60 per cent (6/10) in Group I, 80 per cent (8/10) in Group II and 30 per cent (3/10) in Groups III cows were recovered based on whiteside test and endometrial cytology results. The conception rate was higher (87.50%) in Group II followed by 66.66 per cent in Group I and 33.33 per cent in Group III.
