Two cases of cows were presented to VCC, LUVAS, Hisar, with history of creamish yellow colour, painful lesions on teats and udder with intermittent disappearance and reoccurrence since two months. Clinical observations and laboratory findings revealed that the cases were of udder impetigo. Based on the antibiogram profiling, both the cows were treated with strepto-pencillin 2.5 gm I/M, ketoprofen 3 mg/kg b.wt. I/M and ascorbic acid 20 mg/kg b.wt. I/M for seven days along with local application of povidone iodine on the effected parts of the teats and udder. The lesions started to subside after four days of treatment and completely cured in ten days.
Key words: Udder impetigo; Teats; Treatment; Strepto-penicillin; Povidone iodine.
