In this study, 46 bovines 37 buffaloes, 9 cows were noted with history of cycling normally withoutany clinical abnormalities and returned to estrus even after three or more consecutiveinsemination. The animals were treated with Ciprofloxacin and Tinidazole combination afterconfirming as repeat breeders based on consistency and pH of vaginal discharges. The animalswere inseminated on subsequent estrous. The conception rates were 71.2% and 85.2%respectively for buffaloes and cows.

However during normally without any clinical abnormalities and infection bacterial toxin binds directly to uterine repeated heat after three or more consecutive epithelial and stromal cell to stimulate the release services. The animals had history of normal estrus of prostaglandins E which is luteotropic and may cycles with turbid and thick vaginal discharge at prevent luteolysis (Bogan et al., 2008). After the time of estrus. Vaginal discharge in buffaloes treatment with Ciprofloxacon and Tinidazloe was examined and in case, if it was absent, then combination, vaginal discharges was observed clear and transparent at next estrus. pH of (7.0- stimulate the discharge vaginal discharge and PH 7.2) similar findings was also reported by (Singh before the treatment and after treatment at et al., 2009) per rectal examination after 2-3 subsequent estrus.repeat breeder bovines were months revealed that out of 46 animals 36 have treated with Ciprofloxacin and Tinidazloe conceived (82.2%). Among the bovines, higher combination @60 ml I/U at alternate day for three conception rate was observed in cows (85.2%) than buffalos (71.2%). Conception rate was alsohigher in naturally bred animals 82.2% than RESULTS AND DISCUSSION

Uterine and cervical infection suggests that duringparturition, the physical barrier of the cervix, vagina REFERENCES
