Abstract:

The present study was conducted on thirty cattle suffering from small bowel intussusception presented at the institutional veterinary hospital. The animals were divided into three equal groups depending upon the duration of intussusception since the first signs of colic appear viz. Group I (n=10) (since 48 hours), Group II (n=10) (>48 hours to 120 hours and Group III (n=10) (120 hours to 192 hours). The data from these animals was compared with the values obtained from the 6 healthy animals (control group) from the organised farm. Colour of rumen fluid was normal in all the animals of group I and II and was normal in 70% of group III cases. Consistency of rumen fluid was watery in 60%, 80% and 100% of group I, II and III animals respectively. Odour of rumen fluid was normal (Aromatic) in all the animals of group I, whereas, it was abnormal in 30% animals of group III. Sedimentation activity test (SAT) values were significantly decreased in all the groups of diseased animal as compared to control group. Values of pH varied non significantly in all the groups of diseased animals as compare to control group. MBRT values of all the groups of diseased animals were significantly higher from control group animals. Rumen fluid chloride varied significantly amongst all the groups. Cellulose digestion test (CDT) time was prolonged in 70%, 80% and 90% cases of group I, II and III respectively. Protozoan motility of all the groups of diseased animals was significantly low as compare to control group. Seasonal variations were also reported in rumen fluid parameters, cases admitted in rainy season have better microfloral activity. Altered microflora was managed by administration of combination of prebiotics, probiotics and synbiotics. All the parameters of rumen fluid were recorded at the time of presentation of case and sampling was repeated 4 days after post surgical treatment.
