The local or systemic antibiotics, antiseptics, sulfonamides, hormones have been widely used for
therapeutic management of endometritis in bovine with variable degree of success. However, the cost of
treatments, frequency of administration, side effects on animal health and the milk disposal after treatment
requires an alternate therapy . Several substances like bacterial endotoxin, serum, plasma or hyper immune
serum, polymorphonuclear leucocytes (PMN) extracts and components, granulocyte macrophage colony
stimulating factors, colostral whey and herbal extracts which stimulate natural uterine defense mechanism have
also been tested as an alternative therapy for endometritis.
