The authors summarize the recent results about the bacterial complications of the involution. Achieving the optimum herd reproductive performance requires concentrated management activities such as careful assistance at calving, prevention of postpartum metabolic diseases, early diagnosis and treatment of postpartum uterine diseases, accurate detection of oestrus, correct timing of insemination, reducing the effect of the occasional heat stress, and early pregnancy diagnosis. Among these main activities only early diagnosis, treatment and prevention of postparturient uterine diseases and their effects on milk production and reproductive performance are discussed. Clinical metritis and clinical endometritis (or recently used purulent vaginal discharge: PVD) can be accurately diagnosed also in the field, however it is very important to remark that the presence of PVD alone is not sufficient to diagnose clinical endometritis because cervicitis and/or vaginitis can also cause PVD. The authors present the therapeutic possibilities that have changed in the recent years for the mentioned diseases, as well as recently mentioned therapies like ozone therapy or vaccination. Diagnosing subclinical endometritis requires laboratory work. The medicinal products successfully used in cases of clinical diseases do not always decrease the occurrence of cytological endometritis.
