The present study was conducted on 108 crossbred cows. All cows included had regular estrus cycle with normal estrus but failed to conceive. The animals were divided into 4 pre-artificial insemination and 4 post-artificial insemination treatment groups i.e. normal with treatment (n=18 each), repeat breeder with treatment (n=18 each), normal without treatment (n=9 each), repeat breeder without treatment (n=9 each). The animals not advocated any treatment were considered as control. 30 ml Levofloxacin, Ornidazole and a-Tocopherol were infused intrauterine 10–12 hours pre-or post-artificial insemination and each cow was inseminated at mid-heat. The treatment response was assessed based on pregnancy diagnosis performed per rectum 55–60 days post insemination. The conception rate observed in normal and repeat breeding cows after pre-artificial insemination infusion of Levofloxacin, Ornidazole and a-Tocopherol were 61.11 and 44.44%, respectively against 33.33 and 11.11% in untreated control groups and conception rates in normal and repeat breeding cows following post-artificial insemination intrauterine infusion were 66.66 and 50% respectively, as compared to their respective controls (44.44 and 22.22%) groups.
