Abstract:

This retrospective study investigated the clinico-epidemiological characteristics of mastitis in dairy animals at TVCC, DUVASU, Mathura. The study analyzed medical records from June 2021 to May 2022, focusing on dairy animals diagnosed with clinical mastitis. Data on animal demographics, clinical presentation, and antibiotic usage were extracted and statistically analyzed. The prevalence rate of clinical mastitis in the hospital was 10.269% (2600/267), with cows being the most affected species, followed by buffalo and goats. Udder swelling and hot redness were commonly observed udder abnormalities, while teat blockage was a frequent teat abnormality. Clotted milk was consistently found among milk abnormalities during the study period. These findings provide valuable insights into the clinico-epidemiological characteristics of mastitis in dairy animals. The study emphasizes the importance of proper diagnosis and targeted treatment for effective management, and it can contribute to the development of preventive measures and control strategies to reduce the impact of mastitis on animal health and dairy industry productivity.

Highlights

  • Overall prevalence of clinical mastitis in dairy animals was 10.27%.
  • Variations were observed based on age, season, udder and teat affections.
