Abstract

The aim of presented study was to compare the effect of intrauterine ozone and rifaximine treatment in cows with subclinical endometritis. The study was conducted on 53 Simmental cows with subclinical endometritis, which was diagnosed by ultrasonographic examination. According to results, interval between treatment to pregnancy (46.4 +/- 6.2 vs. 40.0 +/- 6.0), interval from calving to pregnancy (129.4 +/- 9.0 vs. 125.0 +/- 13.1), and insemination number (3.2 +/- 0.3 vs. 3.1 +/- 0.5) after treatment were similar in the groups (P > 0.05). In conclusion, intrauterine ozone treatment was observed as therapeutic as rifaximine and to be an alternative treatment approach in dairy cows with subclinical endometritis.
