Abstract:
Sub clinical mastitis is a common problem of lactating cows. The higher the production potential, higher is the risk especially if the management is not proper. Antibiotic treatments of sub clinical mastitis are not recommended owing to public health concern. Herbs are safe and free from the menace of resistance. Polyherbal mix possess anti inflammatory, antibacterial, antioxidative, galactogogic and immunostimulatory properties, thereby open new vistas in mastitis therapy. The present study was therefore designed to study the therapeutic potential of polyherbal mix in management of mastitis. A phytogenic mixture was formulated using herbs having antimicrobial, anti inflammatory, immunostimulant and galactagogic properties and administered at two doses i.e. 100gm PO and 150 gm PO and compared with a standard antibiotic therapy. Poly herbal mix @ 150gm/animal daily had comparable therapeutic efficacy with standard antibiotic therapy but had better galactogogic properties. Both the groups had maximum efficacy of 83.33% as compare to 66.67% efficacy in group I. None of the animals in untreated control group showed recovery. Milk yield increased with 9.5% in comparison to an increase by 0.61% in antibiotic treated group.
