Background: Gynecological disorders are the major challenge for Goat production profitability in Chuadanga, a goat dominating district of Bangladesh. To control the gynecological cases of goats in Chuadanga district, it is of utmost importance to estimate the prevalence of them along with their current therapeutic management.
Methods: A cross sectional study was conducted from May, 2018 to April, 2019 on a total of 89 gynecological cases of goat to estimate the prevalence of different gynecological disorders along with drug prescribing patterns at Chuadanga Sadar Upazilla, Chuadanga, Bangladesh. Relevant data on different gynecological cases of goat were collected from the registered sheets of Upazilla Veterinary Hospital (UVH) and used for this study.
Result: The highest prevalence of gynecological case was of anoestrous (20.2%) followed by abortion (18.0%), retained placenta (16.9%), pyometra (10.1%), dystocia (9.0%), repeat breeding (6.7%) and prolapse of the vagina (5.6%). The prevalence of metritis was 4.5% followed by milk fever (4.5%), prolapse of the rectum (3.4%) and postpartum bleeding (1.1%). Prostaglandin (25.0%) followed by a combination of oxytocin and calcium (18.8%) and combination of oxytetracycline and metronidazole (18.8%) were commonly prescribed drugs for treating abortion cases. Vitamin AD3E (33.3%) was prescribed the highest for treating anoestrous. A combination of oxytocin and oxytetracycline (33.3%), followed by oxytocin (26.6%) were predominantly prescribed for treating retained placenta. This study reveals the overall burden of reproductive disorders of goat along with drug prescribing patterns at the Chuadanga, Bangladesh. This outcome will be supportive to know the better treatment strategy against reproductive disorders in goat.
