Vol 9(6), 165-173

Joint ill or septic arthritis is commonly observed in young calves and is generally transmitted by haematogenous route. The gross changes like joint diameter, range of motion and lameness pattern were studied before the treatment and on 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th day of post treatment. All the clinical parameters showed a gradual and significant improvement after the treatment. The application of Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) provided better healing, early recovery from the disease by reducing the swelling and oedema, continuous removal of the joint discharge and increased blood supply to the joint. The animals were able to support with the affected limbs after the treatment.
