Abstract:

Subclinical endometritis affects approximately 30% of lactating dairy cows, causing significant economic losses to the dairy industry. Yet, there is no efficient treatment available for this condition. The present study examines the effect of uterine flushing in repeat breeder cows with sterile normal saline solution 30 ml on day selection (oestrus), 4, 8, and 12.All the experimental groups the uterine flushing was common, the therapeutic protocol differ in each group after the uterine flushing. The percentage of polymorphonuclear cells (PMNs) detected with endometrial cytology as an indicator of subclinical endometritis. It was hypothesized uterine flushing would be a technique to reduce the number of PMNs in the uterus, and hence be beneficial for cows affected by subclinical endometritis. Cytology samples were taken by low-volume flushing from 72 repeat breeder cows. In this concluded that normal saline uterine flushing in all experimental groups revealed decreased PMN cells in repeat breeder cows than at time of selection, therefore, uterine flushing technique was a useful and practical method to decrease the number of PMNs in the uterus of cattle.
