Abstract |”This study was conducted on 36 Iraqi local cows (Janoubi) and 24 of them suffering from septic metritis in the large station of cows in Baghdad province (AL-Wahda) during the period from (Jan /2017 - Jun /2017), ages from (3- 6) these cows were divided into three equal groups according to the type of treatment used, The first treated group was treated with 75mg PGF2α intramuscular injection single dose and 20 ml of Penicillin-Streptomycin intramuscular injection one dose (20000 IU / kg penicillin and 5mg / kg streptomycin).The second treated group was treated with the same dose of PGF2α in addition to 20 ml of the Oxytetracycline 20% intramuscular injection single dose. The third group is the control group (without septic metritis).The results revealed that the differences in the responded animals and pregnancy rates were not significant among groups. On the other hand, the differences were significant (P<0.01) in the means of the number of insemination per conception as the first and second groups recorded high estimations as compared with control. The differences in the days open were also significant (P<0.05) as the second group showed the highest estimation compared with first and control group. With regard to blood pictures before treatment, the first and second groups showed significant lower (p <0.01) in the means of the RBC, Hb, and PCV compared with control group.The results of after treatment showed that difference between first group and control were not significant for each of RBC, PCV. The finding of this study is to used PGF2α with penicillin-streptomycin showed an effective influence in the treatment of septic metritis as compared with its effect when used with Oxytetracycline in the local Iraqi cow and the blood pictures was recorded an increasing in the RBC, Hb, and PCV as compared with the corresponding means before treatment.
