Title: The Prophylactic Treatment of Bovine Mastitis using a Homoeopathic Complex (Phytolacca decandra 200CH, Bryonia alba 30CH and Silicea terra 30CH)
Authors: Clark, Lindy Jane
Issue Date: 2002
The purpose of this research was to evaluate the efficacy of a homoeopathic complex of Phytolacca decandra 200CH, Bryonia alba 30CH and Silicea terra 30CH in the treatment of bovine mastitis. The efficacy of the complex was evaluated in terms of its effect on reducing the Somatic Cell Count (SCC) as well as its effect on reducing the total number of clinical cases occurring within the herd on treatment. The aim of trying to reduce the SCC is the fact that it is related to the quality of the milk produced, the higher the SCC the lower the quality and yield of the milk produced and thus the lower the monetary return on the sale of such milk. It is also related to the volume of milk produced as the higher the SCC the lower the quantity of milk produced. The number of cases of clinical mastitis is also an important economical consideration, as there are a number of costs associated with each case including short and long-term losses in production as well as the cost of treatment and management of infected animals
