METABOLIC PROFILE OF COWS BLOOD AFTER TREATMENT THE FOLLICULAR CYSTS IN DIFFERENT WAYS
The Animal Biology
Institute the Animal Biology NAAS, 38 Vasyl Stus str., Lviv 79034, Ukraine The aim of the study was to determine some biochemical parameters in the blood of cows (Ukrainian black and white dairy breed) with follicular ovarian cyst at the 1 st or 2 nd lactation after the application of different methods of treatment and comparative analysis of these treatment regimens. In the treatment of cows of control group the intramuscular injection of Surfagon was used at doses of 10, 10 and 5 ml
... and 5 ml respectively on the 1 st , 3 rd and 5 th days of treatment. For treatment of cows of experimental group the intramuscular injection of liposomal emulsion with inclusion of extracts of herbs (wild thyme (Thymusserpyllum L.), common yarrow (Achilleamillefolium), common nettle (Urticadioica L.)) combining with synthetic gonadotropin releasing hormone was applied twice with interval of 3 days. It has been found that on 7 th day after treatment of cows with follicular cysts progesterone level increased in the blood serum of animals in control and experimental groups comparing to the indicators before treatment and on the 3 rd day of treatment in both groups. The progesterone level in the blood of cows in experimental group was higher by 33.64 % than in control (P<0.01). This may indicate the revitalization of the ovary functioning as a result of treatment that was more effective in experimental group than in control. On the 7 th day of treatment of cows with follicular ovarian cyst cholesterol level was within the physiological norm in the blood serum of animals in both groups but the parameter was higher by 8.71 % in the blood serum of cows in experimental group and this difference was significant (P<0.05). This may indicate a greater impact of regimen of treatment of cows in experimental group on the revitalization functioning of the reproductive system and metabolism of cholesterol in the organism of animals. Due to the research results, we consider that it is appropriate to continue studies on the use of wild thyme, common yarrow and common nettle to treat cows with ovarian follicular cyst.
