The present study was aimed for studying epidemiological, clinico-pathological, hemato-biochemical and therapeutic management of indigestion in buffaloes in and around Pantnagar of Uttarakhand state. Rumen motility reduced substantially in all the therapeutic groups. Before the treatment, pH of rumen liquor was slightly acidic in all the treatment groups. Pre-treatment rumen liquor examination revealed reduced microbial count and activity, which was indicated by reduced total protozoal count, protozoal motility, bacterial count and amount of TVFA in rumen liquor and increase in time values for MBRT, SAT and Nitrate reduction test. Hemogram with leukocytosis, neutrophilia and lymphocytopenia suggestive of more or less stress like condition. Alterations in biochemical parameters included significant (P≤0.05) increase in serum ALT, AST, LDH and BUN concentrations and reduced serum glucose levels. Recovery in magnesium sulphate treated was 83.33%, whereas in all the other therapeutic groups (Air dried RL and Lyophilized RL) recovery was 100%. Based on the clinico-therapeutic study lyophilized rumen liquor was graded as a superior treatment for indigestion in buffaloes followed by air dried rumen liquor and magnesium sulphate respectively.
