A total of four cross bred jersey cows were presented with a history of dribbling of milk from the affected teats. All the animals were primiparous and in their first stage of lactation. Ultrasonographical examination revealed two separate teat cisterns with the absence of streak canal from the additional openings and were tentatively diagnosed to have Siamese or webbed teats. Surgical correction was advised in all the animals and the condition was confirmed by thelotomy and the defect was surgically corrected. Skin sutures were removed on the 10th postoperative day and all the animals showed uneventful recovery.
