Abstract

A blinded, negative controlled, randomized intervention study was undertaken to test the hypothesis that addition of meloxicam, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, to antimicrobial treatment of mild to moderate clinical mastitis would improve fertility and reduce the risk of removal from the...

Abstract

Purposive use of cryopreserved sperm contaminated with pathogenic agents has increased the risk of spreading of fish diseases. The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of A. hydrophila subsp. hydrophila and P. fluorescens inoculations into cryostored milt on fertilization capacity ...

Abstract

This study was conducted to evaluate the potential of uterine lavage sample optical density (ULSOD) test at the time of insemination for diagnosis of subclinical endometritis (SCE). Buffaloes (86) at the time of estrus having >5% polymorphonuclear (PMN) cells in endometrial cytosmears were...

Abstract

Bacteriospermia is a documented risk to reproductive performance when using extended boar semen for artificial insemination. A substantial list of bacteria have been recovered from boar semen attributed to fecal, preputial, skin, and hair microorganisms, with these and other environmental bacteria...

Abstract

A variety of pathogenic contaminants might be isolated from semen, processed for artificial insemination (AI) programs: prions, viruses, bacteria, yeasts or protozoa. This review will discuss the broad scale of pathogens detected in processed ram semen. Reviewed findings will be confronted with the ...

Abstract

Antibiotics are added to semen extenders when preparing commercial semen doses for artificial insemination according to national and international guidelines. However, this addition of antibiotics represents non-therapeutic usage and could be contributing to the development of antibiotic...

Abstract

Antibiotics are of great importance in boar semen extenders to ensure long shelf life of spermatozoa and to reduce transmission of pathogens into the female tract. However, the use of antibiotics carries a risk of developing resistant bacterial strains in artificial insemination laboratories and...

Abstract

Although typically unnoticed, Chlamydia infections in swine have been shown to be both widespread and may impact production characteristics and reproductive performance in swine. Serum titers suggest Chlamydia infection within boar studs is common, and infected boars are known to shed chlamydia in...

Abstract

The presence of bacteria adversely affects boar sperm quality of seminal doses intended for artificial insemination. Currently, the most common measure to prevent bacteriospermia is the addition of antibiotics in semen extenders; however, mounting evidence shows that microbial resistance exists. A...
