Case Study
The article presents a case study of a cow suffering from Bovine Ulcerative Mammilities (BUM) disease. Blisters on the cow got ruptured resulting in formation of ulcers. Swollen tests of hindquarters showed sloughing of skin and exudation of serum. The cow showed pain while milking and did not allow to milk resulting in retention of milk in the affected quarters which led to development of mastitis. It was successfully treated with local application of iodophore antiseptic cream.
