The data obtained in the complex clinical and laboratory diagnosis of digital dermatitis in cattle are presented in the article. The predisposing factors for the occurrence of this disease have been established – violations of the technology of keeping cows and the implementation of not in full zoohygienic measures. In the future, this leads to the development of traumatism of the distal extremities and the penetration of pathogenic and conditionally pathogenic microflora through the damaged areas of the skin and horny tissue of the hooves. It was revealed that the main source of pathogens as etiological agents in cows' hoof disease is litter, in which purulent-necrotic and opportunistic pathogenic microflora was isolated, also found in washings from the wound surface of the hooves. It was registered that digital dermatitis in cattle is accompanied by an acute inflammatory process, tension of the functions of the cellular link of the immune system, metabolic disorders - hypocalcemia and hypophosphatemia in 30 % of cases, parameters of protein metabolism – in 60 % of cases. Key words: digital dermatitis, highly productive cows, diagnostics, hematology, immunology, biochemistry, microbiology.

The diseases caused by helminths are always a major constraint to productivity in small ruminants in the tropics. Garlic, Allium sativum L., a member of the Liliacea family, has been widely recognized as a valuable spice and a folk remedy for a variety of bacterial and parasitic diseases. The objective of this study was to test a treatment neoascaridioses of small ruminants with the essential oil of garlic. A sample of 43 animals with character disease symptoms (diarrhea, cough, spiky hair, anorexia, nasal discharge, pale mucous membranes, growth retardation) were studied. In the stool samples of 40 animals the eggs of neoascarids were founded by flotation method. The animals that make up the experimental group received the essential oil of Allium sativum L. whereas those in the control group received vitamin B-complex as placebo. In 10 days after the last administration of the product, it was found an improvement in the general condition of the treated animals. It was found a significant decrease in the number of eggs per gram of feces. This study shows that garlic can be used as first-line treatment of neoascariases in small ruminants. A combination with other plant extracts could increase the effectiveness of the essential oil of garlic. Key words: Allium sativum, essential oil, therapeutic trial, Ascariasis, small ruminants.
45 Kuzmich R.G., Garganchuk A.A. Functional state of the ovaries in mammary cows during the period of involution processes after parturition
As a result of the diverse influence of numerous causative factors on the body of cows in the postpartum period, problems arise in cows with the recovery and quality of the course of sexual cycles, which leads to prolonged anestrus and multiple unsuccessful inseminations. Currently, many dairy enterprises still cannot decide on the correct scientifically based choice of a reproduction management program. The reason for this, to some extent, is the economic state of the enterprise, the level of technological approach, professionalism of specialists, human factor and others. The question of the time of insemination of cows after parturition is especially relevant. It is known from scientific sources and practice that this indicator depends on the time of completion of the involution of the reproductive apparatus of animals. However, these processes are influenced by many factors and they are different for the cows of each dairy enterprise. Taking into account the existing problem, we conducted studies on the course of the involution processes of the ovaries in cows with different milk performance. As a result, it was found that the completion of the recovery of the ovarian function (the first ovulation after parturition) in cows is observed within 28,4±7,32 – 39,3±12,54 days after parturition, and the period from calving to the completion of uterine involution is from 44,5±9,37 to 58,2±10,56 days, depending on the productivity of animals. The maximum fertilization rate in cows with a milk productivity of 15 – 20 liters/day was 56,7 % when they were inseminated in their third heat, in animals with the productivity of 25 – 30 liters this indicator was significantly lower – 34,7 %. Abnormalities in follicular genesis were revealed, which were characterized by the retardation in the development of follicles, and the absence of a dominant follicle. No yellow body and follicles were found in the ovaries, or, if follicles were found, their diameter ranged from 6 to 10 mm. The ovaries were slightly reduced in size: their length was about – 3,21 cm and width – 1,85 cm. Thereafter such follicles were subjected to luteinization or atresia. In the course of studies on the 14th day after parturition, a low level of progesterone was found, almost 2 times (1,27±0,19 and 0,67±0,09 nmol/l), in the blood serum of cows with a daily milk yield of 25 – 30 liters or more. On day 30, the difference in the content of estradiol was 2,4 times (128,41±16,92 and 53,70±6,53 nmol/l, respectively) and progesterone – 2,9 times (3,53±0,22 and 1,2±10,12 nmol/l) in cows in groups with different milk productivity. This indicates the fact that with a low level of progesterone, there is retardation in the recovery of the reproductive function in high yielding dairy cows after parturition due to the functional disorders of the ovaries and focuses on the need to use hormonal regulation during this period. Key words: ovaries, postpartum involution, fertility, postpartum anestrus, ultrasound, linked immunosorbent assay, estradiol, progesterone.
