Abstract

A buffalo heifer was presented with history of complete anorexia and salivation following accidental ingestion of cocktail agrochemicals and nutritional supplements prepared for crop spraying. Clinical examination revealed vital parameters within normal range with salivation, anorexia, impacted rumen, abdominal pain and congested mucosa. Hematology showed neutrophilia and hemoconcentration. The heifer was treated with fluids, Atropine sulphate, Saline purgative, Magnesium sulfate, Isoflupredone acetate and Vitamin B complex. Buffalo started water intake on fourth day and passed loose foul smelling feces with odor of agrochemicals on fifth day of treatment. Salivation and dullness was reduced on fifth day. Gradual restoration of clinical signs and normalization of feed and water intake with complete clinical recovery was observed on eighth day of treatment. The poisoning was managed with antidote, supportive therapy and continuous monitoring of clinical status of animal.
