Assessment of the effects of intrauterine dextrose infusion on clinical cure rate, daily milk yield, daily rumination, metabolic stress and inflammation in post-partum dairy cows diagnosed with clinical metritis

by Julia Hamilton
This study assessed the effects of intrauterine dextrose infusion in dairy cows with clinical metritis (CM). Postpartum cows (n=641) were screened, those with red-brownish watery vaginal discharge (n=74) were classified as CM cows and assigned to either: 1) CONV (n=37): two administrations of ceftiofur or 2) DEX (n=37): three intrauterine infusions of dextrose. No difference was found in clinical cure rate; however, DEX cows produced less milk and had higher systemic inflammation than CONV cows.
