Number of analgesics of NSAID group viz meloxicam and rofecoxib etc has been used in management of post operative pain. Respiration rate was also recorded to be significantly higher in buffaloes which died following treatment of dystocia as compared to those which survived. However no observable difference was noticed on rectal temperature. The Present study had been undertaken to evaluate the efficacy of meloxicam on rectal temperature and respiration rate in dystocia affected buffaloes.

Key words: Meloxicam, Rectal temperature, Respiratory rate, Dystocia
