Traumatic reticuloperitonitis in cattle: A clinical study

Support Center Support Center. Leukocyte numbers vary with species and reflect the balance between production and release from the bone marrow and consumption [ 32 ].

Table 5 Results of rumen fluid analysis in cattle with traumatic reticuloperitonitis. Haematology revealed significant erythrocytopenia, higher PCV, lower haemoglobin concentration, significant leucocytosis with neutrophilia, presence of more number of immature neutrophils and decreased lymphocyte count.

Frequencies were determined for each clinical and laboratory variable. Diagnose und Therapie bei abszedierender Reticuloperitonitis traumatica.

In addition, a methylene blue reduction time and the concentration of chloride were determined.

Acute localised peritonitis is commonly accompanied by neutrophilia [ 3637 ], often with a reticuloperitlnitis shift [ 1338 ]. University of Zurich; The results of the present study showed that the yearly incidence of TRP as 7.

Acknowledgements The authors thank the technicians of the Medical Laboratory for the haematological and biochemical analyses and the agricultural assistants for their help with reticuloperitknitis clinical examinations. This may lead to localised peritonitis, sometimes involving neighbouring organs, and in severe cases it results in generalised peritonitis.


Cow was trqumatic with Inj. Over the year-study period, cattle with TRP constituted a yearly average of 7. Traumatic reticuloperitonitis hardware disease, traumatic reticulitis In: Other diagnostic tests include radiography and ultrasonography, which will be addressed in a separate paper. Of the cattle, 58 had received no treatment before referral, 50 had been treated with an antibiotic, 88 had received a rfticuloperitonitis and had received an antibiotic and a magnet.

All authors read and approved the final manuscript. Traumatic reticuloperitonitis TRP remains one of the most important internal disorders of cattle in addition to abomasal displacement. Peter Orpin graduated from Bristol in Interpretation of ruminant leukocyte responses. Francoz D, Guard CL.

Constable, Traumatic reticuloperitonitis In: In many cases, a diagnosis of TRP is not possible based on individual clinical or laboratory findings because even the most common abnormalities are not seen in all cattle with TRP. The concomitant disorders would have led to an increase in the maximum values of haematocrit, concentration of urea nitrogen in serum, blood gas variables and concentration of rumen chloride. Pinching of the withers, gradual application of pressure followed by sudden release of pressure on the area between the xiphoid and the umbilicus using a pole and percussion of the abdominal wall with a rubber hammer over the region of the reticulum are the most useful foreign body tests for TRP [ 15 ].

In all cattle, the diagnosis of TRP was based on more than one criterion. Detection and localization of abdominal pain. White, The sensitivity, specificity, and predictive value of total plasma protein in the diagnosis of traumatic reticuloperitonitis.


Haematological analysis included the determination of PCV, total leukocyte count and the concentrations of fibrinogen and total protein using an automated blood analyzer CELL-DynAbbott Diagnostics Division, Baar. The clinical and laboratory findings in cattle with TRP have been thoroughly described in a number of standard texts.

Examination of the cow revealed fever, tachycardia, tachypnoea, with ruminal atony associated with mild bloat and dehydration was noticed.

Foreign bodies that penetrated or perforated the reticular wall were removed during laparoruminotomy in cattle, and in trraumatic others, a reticular inn was drained transcutaneously under ultrasonographic guidance. Interpretation of leukocyte responses in disease.

A short audible grunt is considered characteristic of acute TRP and may be a spontaneous response to reticular contractions or changes in posture such as lying down and getting up [ 61011 ]. Sri Venkateswara Veterinary University. The pole test, pinching of the withers and pain percussion were considered by several authors to be the most important part of the clinical examination in cattle suspected of having TRP [ 628 — 30 ].

Fibre particle length is an important indicator of disease of the reticulum, but an increase in length can also be due to dental disease or an increase in the speed of passage of ingesta through the gastrointestinal tract, such on occurs in diarrhoea [ 17 ].
