Hi Prof. Elsawy, Please note that bacterial infections are secondary invaders after the lesions are inflicted by Calcium in the udder. You know there are a large number of mastitis cases from which no organism (s) is isolated and such cases are primarily due to injury caused by free calcium. Normally Ca ions are sequestrated by citrate in the udder and whenever there is deficiency of Citrate free calcium ions injure udder cells and infected by staph/ strept etc ., which alarm the body's defense system resulting in infectious mastitis. Hence, replenishment of citrate deficiency in the udder maintains the normal pH (~6.0- 6.5). At this acidic level of environments in udder the usually isolated bacteria can not grow and multiply, hence, can not cause mastitis. Any further clarification(s) please do write to me.

Read your very exciting article. I am a small farmer in the vicinity ty of Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan. If mastitis is cured so nicely with the use of single item i.e tri Sodium citrate, its great. Anyways will you kindly dilate that how this tri Sodium citrate solution (with water) is applied. Are the teats to be dipped in it? if so, how long and how many time a day? Or there is another way of its application.

Hi please everybody concerned in mastitis control (prevention/cure) should, first of all, try to know the basic etiology of this ailment. The treatment adopted in line with the cause would itself explain the outcome. Therefore, I request all the scientists/ veterinary practitioners (involved in mastitis control) to explain precisely the basic cause of mastitis in bovines and may be other animals. This is essential for the education and definitive control of mastitis.

Dr.Jibachha Shah - we should look out for cocktail of bacteriophage for the commonly invading bacteria. That will be logical solution to the problem.

Hi Dr Shah, You are right as laboratory grade TSC is very good. A dose of 30gms dissolved is normal tap water about 100 ml as a drench i. e., orally daily for 3-5 days or till recovery. The most important precaution is that TSC must be protected from oxidation i.e., as it is hygroscopic and absorb water from environment if kept in open state. Hence, Must be kept in glass bottles with lids. As oxidized TSC is almost ineffective.

Dear All
Any improvement in mastitis following use of any non conventional or unscientific treatment is primarily attributable to host immunity in udder. And people try to take credit of that like herbals. We all are well read veterinarians, how to digest that topical and external use of any application can control the infection lying inside the udder.
We must accept the thing Which is having sound scientific back grounds. Last upcoming line of treatment on mastitis is Use of cocktails Bacteriophages.

Hi Dr Sharma, I emphasize again that the production of milk in udder of cattle/buffalo or other related mammals is remarkably similar with few variations in milk composition in different species. Now herbal or external use of medications which have been claimed to cure mastitis you have mentioned are not 'digested'. However, use of 'Cocktails of Bacteriophages' for controlling mastitis has been mentioned by you. I would like to request you to please explain this phenomenon in a little more detail which will form the base for such applications.
