Abstract:

This study reports the prompt actions taken to diagnose and treats clinical case of endometritis in a buffalo. A 6 year old, Murrah buffalo was presented to the Veterinary Clinical Complex (VCC), College of Veterinary Science, Rajendranagar, and Hyderabad with a primary history of inappetence. Clinical evaluation revealed pyrexia and animal was dull and depressed with pale mucous membranes. The most prominent abnormality observed was the yellowish mucopurulent discharged from the vulval opening and per rectal palpation of uterus revealed doughy in consistency. Cervical mucus was collected and subjected to White side test and cultural examination. The predominant bacteria found were Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus and also subjected to antibiotic sensitivity test and was found sensitive to Amikacin. Haemato-biochemical analysis revealed monocytosis, slightly elevated AST, hyperglobulinemia and hypoalbuminemia. Based on the history, clinical examination and laboratory findings the case was diagnosed as clinical endometritis. First two days given the symptomatic treatment for pyrexia and actual treatment was given from third day onwards. The treatment was given with Inj. Flunixin meglumine 1.1mg/kg was administered twice a day i.m for 3 days as anti-inflammatory, anti-pyretic and analgesic and given broad spectrum short acting antibiotic Inj. Amikacin sulphate @ 22mg/kg once daily i/m for 5 days in order to treat current infections. Inj. Ferritas@ 1ml/10kg was also administered i/m once as iron supplement and other supportive medication was given. Further, intrauterine wash was performed with 0.9% NaCl using a modified intravenous line passed through the vulva into the uterine body and mucopurulent discharge was irrigated by continuous flushing and 20ml of Amikacin was flushed into the uterine body as the final lavage. Buffalo started showing improvement from next day onwards and on recovered completely by 6th day of post treatment which was confirmed by negative result of vaginal mucous white side test.
