Forty dairy cows that were diagnosed with severe uterine bacterial infection during early PP were divided randomly into two equal groups: A (n = 20 cows) and B (n = 20 cows). Group A was intra-uterine infused with 1% Lugol’s iodine on day 5 PP. Group B was left untreated, to serve as a control. The result showed that infusion of 1% Lugol’s iodine significantly (P
