Twenty-two cows with right-sided displacement of the abomasum were treated with hyoscine-n-butyl bromide and dipyrone (Buscopan compositum; Boehringer Ingelheim). Within 24 hours 11 had recovered completely, three had improved, six had shown no improvement and two had been slaughtered. Within 48 hours 17 of the cows had recovered completely and five had been slaughtered.
