Abstract:

A total of 3 cross bred Holstein Friesian cows were presented to the Department of Veterinary Surgery and Radiology, College of Veterinary Science, Tirupati with a history of blood tinged mucoid faeces, colic, anorexia and reduced ruminal motility. Out of 3 animals two were in the last trimester of pregnancy and one was in the 2nd trimester with no obstetrical abnormalities. Exploratory laparorumenotomy was done in all the three animals and the conditions were confirmed as intussusception, volvulus, and foreign-body. The conditions were corrected by enterotomy and entero-anastomosis. Postoperatively the animals were maintained with parenteral fluid therapy for 5 days and antibiotic therapy for 7 days.


Keywords: Colic, Intussusception, Volvulus, Foreign-body and entero-anastomosis
