Abstract:
Caesarean section is the last resort when per vaginal delivery of fetus is not feasible. Twenty four cows affected with dystocia reported at the teaching veterinary hospital, GADVASU, Ludhiana that required caesarean section for successful foetus delivery were included in this study. Cows were randomly divided into 4 groups based upon the use of peritoneal lavage and drain. In group I (treatment group, n=6), peritoneal lavage with NSS was done during CS. In group II (treatment group, n=6), peritoneal lavage with NSS and drainage was done with Foley’s catheter (18 gauze). In group III (treatment group, n=6), peritoneal lavage with NSS and drainage was done with silicone tube catheter (28 gauze). In group IV (control group, n=6), no peritoneal lavage was done. Blood samples were taken when animal was presented at the clinics (pre-caesarean, day 0) and then at interval of 24 hrs (post-caesarean, Day 1 and 2). Blood plasma was used to estimate BUN, creatinine and total proteins. In between treatment and control groups; BUN, creatinine and total proteins did not differ significantly from each other. Post caesarean (Day 1 and 2) BUN and creatinine concentrations were significantly higher than pre caesarean (Day 0) concentrations within the treatment and control groups. Post caesarean (Day 1and 2) total protein concentration were significantly lower than the pre caesarean concentration (Day 0) within all treatment and control groups. In conclusion, there was no significant difference in the treatment and control groups in pre and post caesarean BUN, creatinine and total protein concentrations.
