Abstract

A total of 36 cows suffering from metritis were divided into 3 groups i.e. group-IA (metritis without palpable CL), Group-IB (metritis without palpable CL) and group-II (metritis with palpable CL) keeping equal number of animals in each group. Animals of group-IA were treated with oxytetracycline 3.0 gm intrauterine daily for 2-4 days; whereas, group-IB animals were treated with cephalexin 4 gm intrauterine daily for 2-4 days. Single intramuscular injection of Dinoprost (PGF2á) 25mg was given to animals of group-II. Recovery rate, on the basis of results of cultural examination, of 3 groups were found as 80.00, 71.43 and 91.67% respectively.
