Occassionally a bull, from serving a cow suffering with leucorrhoea, will be attacked with an inflammation of the penis and mucous membrane lining the sheath which, if allowed to continue, often causes ulcers on the penis and swelling of the sheath. There is a muco-purulent discharge through which the disease will be communicated to cows if served by the bull while suffering with the disease.
Treatment - The affected parts should be thoroughly cleaned with warm water and, if ulcers exist, they should be touched with nitrate of silver. After the first cleansing, wash the inflamed part once or twice a day with cold water, and each time make an application of the white lotion as described in Medicines and How to Prepare Them. When cows become affected, syringe out the vagina with warm water and inject the lotion.
