The objective of the present study was to evaluate the efficiency of using antibiotics with some hormonal preparations for the treatment of toxic puerperal metritis in buffalo cows. Data were collected from 42 buffaloes with toxic puerperal metritis in two large buffalo herds. Swabs for bacteriology and biopsies for histopathology were collected from uterine lumen from each buffalo included in the present study. Results revealed that the most prevalent bacteria in uterine lumen were E. coli, Archanobacterium pyogenes, Staphylococcus aureus and Fusobacterium necrophorum in buffalo cows with toxic puerperal metritis. Sensitivity test indicated that most of the bacterial isolates were sensitive to rifampicin and oxytetracycline 73.8% and 67.9%, respectively. Treatment of buffaloes with rifampicin and oxytetracycline showed a high level of clinical cure and uterine involution. In conclusion, sequential application of estradiol benzoate and oxytocin with intrauterine infusion of rifampicin and systemic administration of oxytetracycline positively affected the clinical cure and uterine involution of buffaloes with toxic puerperal metritis.
