Abstract:

The present study was undertaken to evaluate the therapeutic efficacy of Lugol’s Iodine in 20 infectious repeat breeder crossbred cows brought to the AI centre of Department of Veterinary Gynaecology and Obstetrics of College of Veterinary Science and Animal Husbandry, Mhow and in nearby Government AI centres. Animals were divided into two groups of ten in each. The animals in first group were treated with intrauterine infusion of 0.3 per cent concentration of I2KI w/v dissolved in saline to make 30 ml at 24 hrs intervals for 2 days. The animals in control group were infused with 30 ml saline IU, at 24 hrs interval, for 7 days. The mean values of bacterial count in uterine flushing declined significantly (P< 0.05) after treatment in Lugol’s Iodine group (from 323.88 ± 2.15 to 1.39 ± 0.00 x104/ml) A non-significant increase in mean values of total Cellular count (× 106 /ml) from 0.50±0.01 to 0.608±0.04 and non-significant decrease in mean values of PMNs % from 25.77±0.20 to 20.05±0.17 was in Lugol’s Iodine group than in control group. An overall recovery rate of 60.00 per cent and conception rate of 40.00 per cent was found in Lugol’s Iodine treated repeat breeder cross bred cows.
