Aim: The objective of this study was to make
an inventory of cases of metritis in dairy cows
during the post-partum period, to verify with a
detailed clinical study on its real incidence in
Batna region and to study the treatment of
metritis, using different treatment protocols.
Materials and Methods: A total of 432 dairy
cows were examined during the post partum period
and forty dairy cows having metritis were selected
and assigned into four groups of 10 each to be
treated with different drugs. Visits were
programmed to track the status of uterine
involution and different parameters of fecundity
and fertility of cows.
injection of Cloprostenol (a synthetic analogue of
PGF2α) has a significant effect particularly on
shorter intervals from calving to the first
mating, calving to positive fertilization and for
the reduction of the number of services of
inseminations. Similarly, the association "antibiotic+Flunixin
/Meglumine has a positive effect on the parameters
Conclusion: These results
show that the double injection of Cloprostenol in
the treatment of metritis improves the performance
of fertility of animals and the dose of 3ml of
PGF2α had succeeded in giving a positive effect on
the different fertility parameters studied,
compared to the dose of 2 ml.
