Scrotal pyocele in a bullock and its management: A report

Ajjanagi Bhimappa, Mallikarjun and Vijay Kumar
A case of khillari bullock was presented to Veterinary hospital, Satti, Tq: Athani, Dist: Belagavi, Karnataka with a history of scrotal and testicular swelling since 2 months. On aspiration pus came out from the scrotum. Based on gross and clinical examinations the case was diagnosed as scrotal pyocele and was subjected to scrotal ablation. Surgery was performed under Xylazine sedation and local ring block infiltration around spermatic chord with 2% Lignocaine hydrochloride. Postoperatively, Streptopencillin @ 5g and Meloxicam @ 0.3mg/kg were administered intramuscularly for 5 days. Sutures were removed on 12th postoperative day. The conventional technique of making incision on ventral or ventrolateral aspect of the scrotum and regular dressing of wound cavity is tedious, time consuming. Such animals have to be rested for longer period and there is delayed secondary wound healing. However, the scrotal ablation technique was easy to perform with minimal bleeding. Operated animal recovered uneventfully without any complication.
