Cortisol is often called the "stress hormone" because of its connection to the stress response, however, cortisol is much more than just a hormone released during stress. Parturition, although a physiological process, is a great stress for Dam. So In our studywe tried to evaluate impact of meloxicam on blood plasma cortisol levels in dystocia affected bovines. Cortisol higher levels were maintained even after delivery in surgically handled cases and in buffaloes without preemptive administration of meloxicam. The cortisol levels were found to be significantly (P<0.05) elevated at the time of presentation in buffaloes which subsequently expired after obstetrical manipulation or caesarean operation.
