1. Washing the vaginal cavity and prolapsed part with cold water or preferably with cold light potassium permanganate solution (1:10,000 dilution) can help first degree prolapse to respond when such douching is done for 7 to 10 days. It may relapse after 1 to 2 months.
2. Epidural anesthesia with 2 to 3 ml of Amayl alcohol helps for 2 to 3 months
3. with drawl of fodders like maize when it is flowering stage, few other fodder grasses in flowering stage can have more phyto estrogens which should be withdrawn from feeding
4. If it is known it is due to excessive estrogens in circulation Depot progesterone at the rate of 2mg per kg body weight every alternate week is preferred plus vaginal douching
5, Homoeo drugs like opium 200, kreosutum 200 and Ignatia 200 each 20 pills (30 size pills) 3 times a day for 3 days gives relief for 2 to 3 months.
6. The lying down or sleeping area should have 6 inches slope towards fore limbs
7. Preferred green grass feeding in small quantities or dry fodder in small quantities
8. Incidence of a prepartum prolapse case to become a post partum eversion of uterus is very rare.

In summer months to reduce ambient temp in the shed by 2 to 3 degrees centigrade we have to spray water with a micro sprinkler on the hump region and on the lumbar vertebrae if animals are tied in the shed between 10 am to 4 pm. if not we have to spray water for 5 minutes and put on fans for 15 minutes i.e. 3 times an hour between 10 am to 4 pm.Providing free access to clean cool water is a must. You can look in to THI charts in the Internet and now digital Humidity and ambient temperature electric gadgets are available it can be easily read. When humidity goes high the problem is difficult to set right.

Some have suggested to try GLONOINE 200 (Homeo drug) but we have not tried to cool down the body.

Low roof with poor out of exhaled breath from the animals can be a cause and providing an out let with 2 inch diameter plastic pipe at every 10 feet distance can reduce the effect.

If the eye mucosa is pale we deworm the animal preferably in an empty stomach and feed or fodder is fed after 2 hours and increase the mineral mixture at 1 gram for every 10 kg body weight and 5 grams per liter of milk production. To improve iron levels in the blood we advise to feed curry leaves or palak leaves or slowly Inject Iron Dextron by IV route with 5% DNS.

Please confirm from rectal examination whether the foetus alive or dead on the basis of foetal movements and fremitus, Both willl be absent in macerated foetus when the discharge will be foul smelling. If is macerated foetus Prostaglandin hormones have to be used to knock down CL and estrogen or FSH to be used for softening the cervix to pull out the bone pieces in the uterus with 2 feel long.forceps. At time the bone has to be crushed with long forceps to pull out the broken pieces. In spite of these efforts there are no reports I have come across the animal became pregnant.
If it is not a mecerated foetus daily douching the vagina with 2 per cent Hydrogen peroxide followed by douching with light PP lotion.
Applying M and B antiseptic cream by dissolving 5 grams of the cream in 20 ml of hot water and when it is warm to be used intra vaginally with AI sleeve and syringe loaded withe medicine. If it not available use Savlon veterinary concentrate diluted 100 times as douche.(Even human Savalon can be used).
Dicrysticin (Strepto pencillin) Injection Large vial diluted in 8 ml distilled water is injected daily intramuxscularly for 5 days

Homeo drugs Kreosutum 200, Sabina 30 Gun powder 6 30 size pills each 10 pills 3 times a day for 7 to 10 fed by mouth.

To Improve appetite liver stimulants and in homeo Nux vomica 30; 10 pills 30 size one dose is advised

For non-specific diarrhea (loose motions) we use Homeo drugs Merck sol 200 Antimony crudum 30 and Podophyllum 30 or 200 each 10 pills of 30 size globules 3 times in a day for 3 days. To prevent dehydration ORS of FDC company 1 pocket is dissolved in boiled and cooled water and made up to 1 liter and given to the animal.
There are in the market ready-made antidiarrhoeal drugs with and without antibiotics can be used.

One major advantage of this system against bacteria or viruses no resistance develops.

For many ailments no systematic studies were carried out in the usage of homeopathic drugs in livestock.

Still it is in its primitive stage of application.

For loose motions in cows Merck sol 200, Antimony crud 200 and Podophyllum 30 each 20 pills of 20 size 3 times a day for 3 days has been tried with 80% success

Lift the udder up by holding a cloth or gunny underneath the udder and massage the quarter/s. Inject 10 to 20 i.u. of oxytocin intra muscularly and animal lets down the milk, drain out the contents. Sterilize the teat pore with antiseptic swab.
2. If the pH of the milk is alkaline orally administer sodium citrate 30mg/kg body wt in 250ml of water. {Mammidium – Intas; MastiGard feed cake – Neo Spark; Ban Mast 50-Rathna biotec etc,}

Homeo Drugs used for certain conditions by Bangalore Milk Union Route Veterinary doctors

1. Fibrosed teat canal / In cervicitis where AI gun don’t pass easily to do AI: Aurum Muriaticum Natro Natum (AMNN)30 - 5 ml, Thiosinamum6 - 5 ml, Gun powder6 - 1 ml and Conium 30 - 1 ml Calcaria flour 30 - 1 ml charged to sugar pills and these pills have to be fed daily 3 times a day till the fibrosis disappears. If the animal shows any straining in 15 minutes time after giving pills discontinue the use of drug AMNN. Knuckling the thumb or stripping the teats has to be avoided. Full hand milking has to be adopted. Daily applying the fruit pulp of Noni fruit to the surface of fibrosed teat resolves it.
1a. Fibrosed udder: Calcaria carb30 -5ml, Carbo animalis30 -5ml, Aur. mur. nat. natum30- 1/4ml, Thiosinaminum30- 1/4ml. Above mixture 1/2ml in 3ml of distilled water is indicated weekly once intramammary, 4-6 weeks. Contents of udder have to be removed before next injection. Better response for next lactation. To 250 gm Pig fat (it should be lukewarm) 20 gm of Iodex ointment is mixed for external application only to the udder and not to the teats. Soon after applying the hands has to be washed thoroughly. Can be used for fibrosed knee or stifle joint where good bedding is advised/ 6inches thick sand bed has to be provided.
2. Blood in urine: Withdrawing water from drinking makes the calves to lick soil, they develop pot belly. After withdrawal followed by providing water is a cause for this. Eating few varieties of fodders, plants like break fern is also a reason for this. Not feeding quality mineral mixture is the other reason. Provide water, mineral mixture and avoid access to such fodders/plants which cause problem. Hamamalis30 and Kali chlor30 each 10 pills TID for 5 to 7 days is advised.
3. Opacity of cornea or eye injury: Eupharesia30 and Symphytum30 are mixed and given 20 pills TID daily till recovery. The eye has to be protected from sunlight with black or blue colour cloth. Chloromycitin apppli caps can be applied twice a day, daily till recovery.
4. Prepartum prolapse of vagina/cervix: To half a bucket of cold water few crystals of Potassium permanganate are added and dissolved so that the bottom of the container is visible and the solution should have a light pink colour. Too dark colour will cause further irritation and prolapse. Prolapsed part is washed with 4 liters of water per time. Homoeo drugs Opium200, 10 pills 3 times a day are fed for 3 to 5 days. Carbo veg30/200 is given if there is used eversion of rectum and Ignatia30 if the animal is excitable, dose each10 pills 3 times a day are fed for 3 to 5 days. The hind limbs are elevated by 6 inches when the animal is lying down. Try to feed small quantities of dry fodder more times in a day or reduce green fodder intake. Withdraw fodders or plants which have been identified to cause prolapse due to more phytoestrogen content. Injecting Progesterone 2mg/kg body wt. Once in a week till calving can be practiced.
5. Eversion of uterus: Two handfuls of rice are soaked in water for 15 minutes, decant the supernatant, to that mix the juice from the leaves of touch me not or the juice of entire plant of touch me not and smear to the everted part. To that animal 20 pills of Podophyllum30, Sabina200, and Ignatia30 each one dose. The other line of treatment is injections of 20ml of Duvadilan (Dupharlabs) or Bricanyl (Astra zenac) can be administered. The hind limbs have to be elevated. Try to feed small quantities of dry fodder more times in a day or reduce green fodder intake.
6. Chronic diarrhea: Merck corrosive200, Antimony crud200 and Podophyllum30 10 pills each TID, for 1 to 3days advised.
7. Mild adhesions of fallopian tube: Thiosinamum6 - 5 ml, Calcaria carb 30- 1 ml and Conium 30 - 1 ml Calcaria flour 30 - 1 ml charged to sugar pills and these pills have to be fed daily 3 times a day till the fibrosis disappears.

Dear Gulshan Narang,
In India the situation is different many farmers have 1 to 10 animals and management can be better provided he knows what is correct management. In many instances, it is the female folk manages livestock and also as homemaker.
If a veterinary graduate can examine the animal on the day of estrus and thereafter once a week for 3 more times and has to asses the uterine tone, tubularity and consistency as well ovary length, height/breadth and thickness and ovarian structural changes and by recording them as black and white, the farmer has to maintain estrus dates and AI dates. and interpreting it is possible to know reasons for repeat breeding.

A. HOW TO AVOID REPEAT BREEDING IN BOVINES?

1. By proper steaming up of the animals during dry pregnancy period, giving 150 mg of sodium selenite and 400 mg of vitamin E, restricting the body score between 3.50 to 3.75 / 5.00 scale. Use ecbolic drugs after calving. By challenge feeding during postpartum period and concentrates are fed 3 to 6 times a day at the rate of 2.00 to 3.00 kg + 50 to 60 per cent of milk yield. Use of two doses of PGF2 alpha around day 20 to 28 after calving and 12 days later or adopt ova synchronization or pre-synchronization ova synchronization method to prepone postpartum anoestrous. It is preferred to restrict forward breeding in graded animals (F2 generation).

2. Newborn calves should be fed with colostrum within 15 minutes. Rough maize powder is fed from day 5, calf starter (27 kg dry Lucerne/Fenu greek fodder at flowering stage, 32 kg Soya bean cake/ ground nut cake, 38 kg wheat bran, 2 kg mineral mixture, 1 kg salt and 100 gm vitamin mix. Calves consumed colostrum lately grow slowly, with under developed genitalia (UDG) and don’t mature earlier to 30 months, there after also they do commonly become repeaters. UDG cases are treated by deworming, feeding mineral mixture for 4 – 6 weeks; inject depot progesterone (Proluton depot/ Duraprogen) 250 mg IM and skip first heat.

3. By proper hygiene at the time of calving and rest is needed for two normal cycles, which had partum or postpartum complications.

4. Proper record keeping is necessary. i) The intensity of heat. I) duration of heat, iii) degree of relaxation of sacrosciatic ligaments, iv) quantity and quality of mucus discharge, v) quantity of urine passed around AI time, vi) on the day of heat, 3, 10 and 17th day the tonicity, tubularity, consistency of uterus as well on these days. Length, height/breadth, thickness of the ovary and size-and the consistency of follicle (cyst) CL are recorded. These will help in deciding the case is a repeat breeder or not and planned treatment can be done.

5. Avoid excitement around the time of Al, giving 15 minutes rest before and after AI, gliding the AI gun over the clitoris massaging of clitoris after AI is necessary.

6. Maintaining proper LN2 levels, proper hygiene at the time of AI, and in any intrauterine treatment is most needed.

7. In early heat semen is deposited intra cervically and in the late mid / early late heats 1/2 the semen is deposited i/u and rest is deposited intra cervically while withdrawing the AI gun.

8. Semen is preferably thawed in warm water at 35.5 to 37oC for 30 seconds using a thermometer to check the temperature of water, should be used as early as possible and thawed semen should not be carried in the pockets, over ice cubes for AI.

9. The animal should be getting its share of dry matter and other nutrients depending on the milk yield and fat per cent. Feeding less Dry matter can be a major cause for repeat breeding.


B. HOW TO TREAT REPEAT BREEDER COWS?

1. Using double sheath AI and doing Caslick's operation in pneumo-vagina cases.

2. Using Povidone iodine solution into ipsilateral horn to further regress a regressing CL and doing AI next day.

3. Using pre or post-AI antibiotics in the second heat. Mucus discharge is collected for isolation and antibiotic sensitivity.

4. In the third heat, treated with GnRH/hCG/Bromocryptin/ Vitamin C injections during heat. On day 3 and 10 injecting antibiotics intramuscularly or PGF2 alpha on day 10 to 12 of heat and in the induced heat antibiotics are used according to the antibiotic sensitivity and inseminated in the following heat.

5. In the next heat endometrial biopsy is collected and tubal blockage is tested and relieved if uterus is free from infection.

6. Animals suffered from Foot-and-Mouth disease, if show heaving symptom homeo drugs, Ipecac 30, Iodum 200, each 10 pills TID is given for 7 days and repeated after a week. Alternately Entodon injections and colossal iodine is given orally or feed 30 gm iodinated salt twice a day for 60 days. They are fed with a handful of overnight soaked (later grinded) Fenugreek seeds (Trigonelle foenum) and 50 gm of fried, cooled and pounded Til / Gingilly seeds (Sesemum indicum) along with jaggary, for 10 days and may be repeated after 15 days.

7. Animals going down in their body condition in the early postpartum period can be fed daily with 2 kg of Ash guard (Cucumber lemo) and 100 to 200 ml of sesame oil or Gingilly oil in 4 divided for 10 to 15 days.

8. Check for acidity of rumen and correct it with sodium bicarbonate other mistakes can be feeding more rice polish or wheat bran or feeding finely powdered grain.

9. Check for uterine involution and infection of uterus and treat accordingly.

10. Check sub-clinical mastitis and treat accordingly.

11. Heifers with under developed genitalia are to be dewormed and fed mineral mixture, need be treated with Depot progesterone 250 mg and one immediate heat has to be skipped. Dr.Pachegoankar Deputy Director AH from Maharastra is of strong opinion to deworm on full moon day and 2 days prioir to full moon day which causes more death of worms with Allopathic or Ayurvedic or Homeo medicines

12. Using homeo drugs Sepia 200, 0.25ml, Conium 30, 0.25ml, Iodum 200, 0.25ml and Calcaria carb 200, 0.25ml. This mixture of 0.25ml in 5 ml water given orally3 times a day for 3 days can force either cows or heifers of cattle or buffaloes,in to heat provided you have dewormed, mineral mixture was fed and ovaries are bulged Using Cyclomin 7 having trace minerals once in 3 to 4 days one bolus at a time for 4 to 6 weeks can give still better results.

In summer months to reduce ambient temp in the shed by 2 to 3 degrees centigrade we have to spray water with a micro sprinkler on the hump region and on the lumbar vertebrae if animals are tied in the shed between 10 am to 4 pm. if not we have to spray water for 5 minutes and put on fans for 15 minutes i.e. 3 times an hour between 10 am to 4 pm.Providing free access to clean cool water is a must. You can look in to THI charts in the Internet and now digital Humidity and ambient temperature electric gadgets are available it can be easily read. When humidity goes high the problem is difficult to set right.

Some have suggested trying GLONOINE 200 (Homeo drug) but we have not tried to cool down the body.

Low roof with poor out of exhaled breath from the animals can be a cause and providing an outlet with 2 inch diameter plastic pipe at every 10 feet distance can reduce the effect.

If the eye mucosa is pale we deworm the animal preferably in an empty stomach and feed or fodder is fed after 2 hours and increase the mineral mixture at 1 gram for every 10 kg body weight and 5 grams per liter of milk production. To improve iron levels in the blood we advise to feed curry leaves or palak leaves or slowly Inject Iron Dextron by IV route with 5% DNS.

For prolapse in homeo, we use opium 200 30 size pills 10 3 times a day for 5-7 days
If there is rectal prolapse also we use carboveg 200 dose as above

Vishwanathan, Sir: my cow suffered from fetal maceration while pregnant for the 2nd time after 10 months of nondelivery the macerated fetus was removed in presence of a veterinary doctor, but even after 3 months of operation, she is unable to conceive again and come to heat in every 9-15 days. She had been provided many antibiotics, intravaginal, orally and through injections, but intravaginal discharges like ripe mucous did not stop. Please suggest some homeopathic cure for it.

Your cow may not become pregnant as deep layers of uterus would have been affected. Merck Sharp dome co METRICEF may be used. Ask the company people to help you. No homeo drugs will help now.
