Sir I need harbal formulation mastitis

Adopting the Ethno-veterinary Science and Practices to combat infectious and other clinical conditions in livestock has been identified and tested as a key game changer in reducing the use of antibiotic and other veterinary drugs in veterinary practices. It is also indicated that EVP was extremely helpful for the farmers during the corona lock down period as these formulations could be prepared and use by the farmers themselves for the wellbeing of their cattle.

What herbs treat inflamed klebsiella mastitis and inflamed staphylococcus aureus quarters?

July 9, 2020
Lorenzo Quesnel
This is efficacious for subclinical, clinical klebsiella mastitis and chronic mastitis
the result is supported by microbiome study of the udder. the paper is under publication
this also can prevent mastitis . there will be slight change in the protocol for treatment of subclinical, clinical klebsiella mastitis and chronic mastitis
recovery of chronic mastitis is about 75%

Dr. Nair,
Thank's for the reply
When the publication is published could you please send a link?
Is there merit in herbal galactogoges?
We average 38 kilograms per day on
our 900 cows. Is there a single herb for
the best results? Would essential oil of black seed and fennel seed increase butterfat % without affecting production?
Is Ruchamax best for indigestion and off feed dairy animals? Is hb strong or galog
or galacton vet effective for our level of
milk production?

Santosh Kumar Thanks from USA. Is Ruchamax the best product for dead rumens? Is there better
herbs or herbal products for off feed cows?
September 3, 2020
Santosh Kumar Sir, could asparagus racemosus 20:1 water extraction be used to replace 250 grams of Shatavari powder?

Asparagus recemosus root 250 grams /day very good galactogoge
Ipomia mauritiana extremely good - the swollen root 250 /day
July 18, 2020
My personal opinion on galactagog is very precise
If the cow is producing its optimum capacity no need of disturbing that by using any additional material
if the cow is producing below its capacity because of some imbalance you could use herbal supplement
Asperagus 250 grams for 15 days or Ipomea mouritiana root 250 gra per day for 15 days

Dr. M.N.balakrishnan Nair Can a 10:1or a 20:1 hot water extract asparagus racemosus be used as a galactogogue at lower quantity

Herbs based treatment for clinical and sub-clinical mastitis has a great future. We are well aware of the indiscriminate use of antibiotics for mastitis treatment, which is causing antimicrobial resistance in human beings consuming milk with antibiotics residues. Moreover, damage caused to the udder and the teats is often irreversible. Since we aim at improving productivity of dairy cattle, for obvious reasons incidences of mastitis are likely to increase. For this reason, we tried Aloe vera based ointment and an oral supplement. We got wonderful results for curing mastitis, including fibrosis of the udder. Since Punjab has a very large population of high yielding dairy animals, we plan to use this Ethno Veterinary based aurvedic treatment on a large scale, under the Milkfed, Verka.
July 29, 2020
Yes we have worked with Verka dairy and hope to interact more
one of the feedbacks I am getting now is that during the COVID 19 period the household herbal formulations were very handy to the poor farmers to manage the health of their animals even without the veterinarians service.
we are now planning a webnair / 2 hour workshop for the public who would like to communicate with us and clarify on management of Mastitis
the date and time will be informed soon
people who are interested can register nair.mnb@tdu.edu.in

Dr. M.N.balakrishnan Nair timely initiative
August 6, 2020
One company near Ahmedabad is commercially manufacturing Aloe Vera based ointment and oral supplement for treating mastitis at sub-clinical and clinical levels which I understand is being used by Amul with excellent results under field conditions. We too used these preparations in Punjab with excellent results. For large scale use, such a ready made stuff is very nice. However, it has also been tried locally at certain places with good success but for large scale use ready made stuff is very handy.
August 13, 2020
Dear Sir please detaile Aloe Vera based ointment and oral supplement for treating mastitis at sub-clinical I want to manufacturing
August 6, 2020
I have developed a spray and ready for marketing
It is delayed because o corona

The solution is NO mastitis. Remember US of A has a separate Board for Mastitis Control.

Once an animal is affected by mastitis, the entire economics of rearing an animal for milk goes for a toss.

Unfortunately, we are still peddling mastitis treatment. It is akin to collecting the milk which has got spilt on sand.
August 21, 2020
Dear Sir
Our herbal formulation is not only curative it is preventive also. WE already have one a paper published on prevention of dry cow mastitis, In every report we mention that this formulation is preventive and curative

Dr. M.N.balakrishnan Nair
This product is not available in Kenya, how can I get it ?
October 28, 2020
Dr. M.N.balakrishnan Nair Dear doctor, your work is a very happy place, but the result of your work should be seen on the farm, not in a published article
August 23, 2020

Forum friends:

The best control of mastitis is to avoid or control in the best way the spread and/or contagion of them and not through the treatments, as well as avoiding the presentation of environmental mastitis through correct hygiene measures. By curing, however efficient the treatments are, the advance against the disease will be minimal.

Fraternal greetings from the north of Peru.

So to those who say that the only way to "cure" Mastitis is for the cow to never get it. That's a good option.
Except for the fact that there are cows (& other's animal's) that freshen for the first time that end up with it. Not because of unsanitary conditions or because someone else in the herd or group might have it. But simply (or maybe not so simply) because they turn out to be heavy milkers immediately. Meaning having an animal that bag's up quickly & big prior to her giving birth & getting larger after giving birth & that's their only issue as they've never given birth prior, not been around any other that might have had mastitis any prior time. So...

While it'd be nice to never have to deal with Mastitis ever again, the reality is that unless you sterilize the ground prior to having dairy animal's in there & then keep their teat's sterilized inside & out, we're going to deal with mastitis at some point.
The other thing that we have to deal with, especially once we have an animal that gets mastitis at least once, then we have to make sure that whichever bacteria has caused it, is 100% out of their system. As I read an article recently that stated a cow that's had mastitis can still harbor that bacteria, even when she's dry & it will reemerge once she's freshened.
So, if there's something that is not only curative but can be preventative, it's worth investigating & trying.

Dear Dr Stanley
There are two possibilities
1. we can share the formulation and manufacture there
we can prepare here and send it to you in bulk and bottle and sell it there
August 24, 2020
Dear Raul
How are you ? hearing from you after a long time
Hygiene is very important
Bur you know the instance of too much control of streptococcus and staphylococcus which were easily treated was replaced then by E coli which is very difficult to treat and control. Therefore a holistic approach is every time better

I need mash poultry feed formulation wage formulation
September 16, 2020

My mastitis spray will be available shortly. We got delayed because of COVID 19.
We only trained AMUL, Saberkanta vets to use this formulation.
I am waiting for the Shelf life and the toxicity study. we have completed a microbiome study before and after treatment to ensure and confirm that the mastitis is cured.
I assure that by end of the year the spray will be available in the market with full scientific backing.
