Clinical metritis has been defined as condition seen in animals those are not systemically ill but have an abnormally enlarged uterus and purulent uterine discharge detectable from vagina, within 21 days after calving.
Clinical endometritis has been defined as a condition with presence of purulent (>50% pus) uterine discharge detectable from vagina 21 days or more after parturition, or muco-purulent (approximately 50% pus, 50% mucus) discharge detectable in vagina after 26 days.
It is characterized by fever, anorexia, depression, dehydration, reduced milk yield and fetid watery uterine discharge (Olson et al., 1986, Smith et al., 1998).
On fourth day morning, reddish black uterine discharge started coming out.
Forty crossbred cows were diagnosed to have endometritis and post treatment clinical evaluation was done by clinico-gynaecological examination along with white side test and pH of uterine discharge
. Selected cows were randomly divided into four groups (n = 10) namely [T.sub.1,] [T.sub.2,] [T.sub.3] and [T.sub.4] for IU treatment protocols.
This study involved 238 cows with turbid uterine discharge at estrus that had failed to conceive despite three or more attempts of repeated artificial inseminations and/or natural services.
Out of 238 uterine discharge samples from endometritic cows, a total of 37 (15.5%) mycotic isolates were recorded and identified.
It is characterized by fetid red-brown watery uterine discharge
along with pyrexia (Drillich et al., 2001), reduced milk yield, dullness, inappetance or anorexia, elevated heart rate and apparent dehydration.
were subjected to white side test following procedure of Popov (1969) for confirmation of uterine infection.
The estrous cycle phase can compromise the detection of uterine discharges
since the cervix is open during estrus and closed during diestrus.
The animal was followed for 2 months and no reoccurrence of prolapse was noticed, but pustular uterine discharges
