Abstract:
Uterine infection is one of the major gynaecological problems, affecting reproductive efficiency and economy of milk production in dairy animals. The study is designed to isolate various bacterial population of uterus in endometritic cow and to compare different treatment measures for endometritis in cow. Out of the 130 dairy cows with various reproductive disorders, 18 endometritic cows were divided into 3 groups comprising 6 cows in each group. Group I were treated with Uraksha, group II were treated with E. coli LPS and group III were treated with levofloxacin (Lenovo AP) after culture and sensitivity test in cervicovaginal mucus of each cow. Gram negative bacteria were found to be the major cause of endometritis in dairy cows. The bacteria isolated were E. coli, Proteus spp., Bacillus spp. and Staphylococcus spp. The flouroquinolone groups of antibiotics, levofloxacin (88.89%), enrofloxacin (72.22%) and ciprofloxacin (72.22%) were most found to be most effective in sensitivity test while ampicillin (11.11%) and oxytetracycline (5.56%) were least effective. All the isolates in the present study were resistant to penicillin. The highest (83.33%) overall conception rate was found after treatment with E. coli LPS.
