Speaking to MWINGI TIMES, a resident said that when a cow swallows Kivuthavuthi, the traditional remedy is giving the cow a detergent or urine.

Usually, when an animal swallows Kivuthavuthi, it's interstines swell and can be seen having a huge abdomen.

Lack of treatment kills the cows within a short time.
