We have Holstein Fresian heifers in advanced pregnancy imported from Australia. In some animal the quarter on left rear side have firm swelling of tissue like firosis . The treatment with ketoprofen and antibiotic respond good.The question is what may the cause of this swelling ? Secondly, should we treat it or wait for parturation of the affected animals?
