Abstract:

The present study was conducted to detect subclinical mastitis from milk and also to evaluate the therapeutic efficacy of the indigenous polyherbal formulation. Twenty four lactating cow suffering from subclinical mastitis (SCM) were randomly divided into four treatment groups G-II to G-V, whereas G-I comprised of six apparently healthy cows. G-II did not receive any treatment and served as the positive control. G-III was provided with standard therapy with Amoxicillin and Cloxacillin @ 10mg/kg bwt I/M along with Meloxicam @ 0.5 mg/kg bwt I/M for 3 days. G-IV was administered with 5 gm each from Azardirachta indica, Boswellia serrata, Vitex nigundo, Ocimum sanctum and Tinospora cordifolia herbal powder @ 25 gm orally for 5 days. Group-V was treated with group III and IV combination therapy. The Somatic Cell Count (SCC) in G-IV to G-V was significantly reduced on 10th day of post-treatment. Similarly, electrical conductivity (ER) was significantly reduced on 7th day, which was further reduced on 10th day. The combined treatment was most effective in the reduction of ER on 7 and 10th day of post-treatments as compared to herbal treatment alone. In addition, the antibiotic treatment reduced the pH significantly on 7th day, while in combination therapy, it was reduced significantly on 3rd day onward. Hence, herbal treatment along with standard treatment was most effective in the amelioration of pH, somatic cell count and electrical resistance as compared to standard treatment or herbal treatment when given alone.
