Clinical of foreign bodies syndrome: A comparison of two methods of rumine fixation in sheep


The objective of present study was to treat foreign bodies syndrome via in ten awasi sheep brought to educational Vet. Hospital of University of Mosul . the operative animals divided into two equal group of 5 animals. First G fixation method was used (rumine fixed with skin). Second G: A modified Weigarths ring used. Such criteria were used to estimate the efficacy of each methods, time consuming, contamination during operations. Clinical observations, blood picture and physical examinations are recorded preoperational and weekly postoperatively to evaluate the best method to fix the rumen during operation without complications and good prognosis. The results exhibited signs of bloat and anorexia accompanied with presence of foreign bodies syndrome in most operative animals, this study clarify that the skin fixation method suitable method for rumenotomy in sheep with minimal complications and more secure closure of the abdominal cavity, so less chance of contamination level. The physical examination exhibited significant decrease in body temperature post operatively (39.31±0.23C0) as compare before treatment, the rumen contraction increased and back near to normal level 1.31± 3.7)) per 5 min, there are significant decrease in total white blood cell count, PCV and neutrophil, whereas there are no significant changes in blood picture and physical parameters at modified Weingarths technique. We can conclude from presence study that possible perform rumenotomy by using one method of rumen, first skin fixation technique reflected good results as compare to modified Weingarths technique
