Abstract

Diagnosis of Sub-Acute Ruminal Acidosis (SARA) in stone pulling bulls was undertaken based on history of feeding on high concentrates diets; clinical signs like soft pasty feces, laminitis, exercise intolerance, anorexia/inappettence, decreased ruminal motility and change in bio-physical characters of ruminal fluid. Hemato-biochemical examination revealed neutrophilia, anemia, increased level of ALT and AST as well as decreased levels of albumin. The affected bulls were successfully treated with ruminal buffers, probiotics, anti-histaminics and B-complex vitamins. Antibiotic therapy was advocated in those bulls with secondary bacterial infection.
