Abstract | The present trial was undertaken to evaluate the efficacy of a polyherbal formulation, Bovituss® (M/s Ayurvet Ltd., India), as a supportive treatment for alleviating the clinical signs of respiratory distress. Forty-two cows and she-buffaloes, aging four to nine years of different lactational stages suffering from respiratory tract infection were selected and divided into two equal groups viz. Group 1, receiving standard parenteral therapy with antibiotics and antipyretics, and Group 2, additionally receiving 30 mL Bovituss orally twice daily for a period of five days. The animals were examined on days 0, 3, and 5 of treatment. A significant reduction in the severity of respiratory signs was observed in Group 2. Significant improvement in feed intake was seen only in Group 2 and the overall clinical indices of both the groups calculated for all the three days revealed a significant improvement in Group 2.
