A Rare Case of Athelia in A Cross Breed Cow

Uma Rani R., Kokila S.


A three-year-old Jersey cross breed cow was referred with the history of recent calving and congenital absence of three teats. Clinical examination revealed that the udder was normal and engorged with milk. The right fore teat was normal in shape without any physical abnormalities. There was absence of left fore, left hind and right hind teats and they were represented by small eruptions. Permanent therapeutic cessation of lactation was achieved successfully by intramammary infusion of each affected quarter with 120 ml of 5 % povidone iodine solution.
