Most of the septicaemic diseases in small ruminants affect liver, as most of the blood pass through this organ. Major sources of etiologies/ afflictions are from pathogenic organisms, nutrition, xenobiotics or toxins whose effects are varied, which may be localized or generalized, cumulative or chronic, acute, sporadic or outbreaks etc. Liver is vulnerable to many parasitic infections and helminthic diseases such as Fasciolosis, Cysticercosis, Hydatidosis and Stilesia hepatica make liver unsuitable for human consumption due to condemnation upon meat inspection. A total of 110 sheep mortalities were necropsied and of which 105 livers showing abnormalities were noted. The most frequent lesions observed were congestion (73.33%) followed by cell swelling (23.81%), haemorrhage (21.90%), hydropic degeneration (18.09%), coagulative necrosis (18.09%), acute focal hepatitis (14.28%), fatty change (8.57%), biliary hyperplasia (6.67%), acute multifocal hepatitis (5.71%), chronic hepatitis (3.81%), thrombosis (0.95%) and hepatic abscess (0.95%) in liver.
