Abstract:

Three Holstein Friesian cross bred and one Jersey cross bred cattles were reported with the history of anorexia, scanty faeces, recurrent tympany and pyrexia for 3-5 days. Clinical examination revealed scanty faeces, recurrent tympany, pyrexia, bruxism, tachypnoea and tachycardia. Haemato-biochemistry revealed neutrophilia with leukocytosis and significantly elevated mean aspartate aminotransferase and globulin values. No change in silhouette of reticulum could be appreciated on radiography. Ultrasonography revealed anechoic cystic structure with echogenic capsule of the reticular wall. Video endoscopy by physical restrain could not appreciate specific changes. Conservative medical treatment was attempted with ceftriaxone antibiotic and fluid therapy. Owners sold the animal as there was no significant clinical improvement after therapy.
