Metritis following parturition: serum progesterone and 17 beta-oestradiol levels. The significance of the corpus luteum and the advisability of using a luteolytic agent as a treatment



Metritis following parturition: serum progesterone and 17 beta-oestradiol levels. The significance of the corpus luteum and the advisability of using a luteolytic agent as a treatment



Canadian Veterinary Journal 21(1): 18-20



A group of 22 postpartum Holstein Friesian cows showing abnormal uterus were divided into two groups and treated with a) PGF(2)alpha or b) diethylstilboestrol and oxytocin. Most blood P(4) values were under 0.5 ng/mL whereas E(2) blood level was higher than in normal cycling cows. The report emphasizes the need for a careful clinical examination in order to apply the proper therapy.
