Title: Treatment of Experimentally Induced Lactic Acidosis in Goats Using Surgical and Medicinal Methods
Author: Ibrahim, Ferdous Abdalla Koko
Abstract: This study was designed to determine the appropriate treatment for the lactic acidosis in goat. Lactic acidosis was induced by feeding millet flour at a dose rate of 60- 75 g/kg body weight (BW). A total of 25 goats (3 to 6 month ages) were randomly divided into five groups. In addition to control group, other four groups were subjected to medical, surgical, surgical and medical and herbal treatments. Some clinical observations, some haematological parameters as well as some biochemical values were recorded. In addition to that, rumen pH was also measured. All parameters were taken at intervals of 4 to 20 hrs after feeding of millet flour. Later, the same parameters were also recorded after each treatment at intervals of 8, 12, 18, 26, 38 and 50 hrs. The clinical signs of lactic acidosis were observed in all groups within the first 4- 20 hrs. Respiratory and pulse rates were significantly (p≤0.05) increased. Similarly, PCV, haemoglobin, and white blood cells in addition serum glucose, total protein, albumin and urea were also increased. The herbal treatment group showed zero mortality rate, while medical, surgical and surgical and medical treatment groups revealed mortality rates of 20, 40 and 20%, respectively. All the treatment protocols were able to correct the acidotic condition in rumen of goat. It could be concluded that herbal treatment was the best way for lactic acidosis treatment in goat followed by medical, surgical and medical and then surgical treatments.
