Abstract

The present case report describes the diagnosis and management of unfamiliar localized peritonitis in a goat presented to Veterinary Clinical Services Complex, Faculty of Veterinary Sciences and Animal Husbandry, Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology of Kashmir. The goat had been ill from 3 days, the primary complaint being anorexia, tympany, scanty defecation and abdominal distension. The rectal temperature and rumen motility were within normal range but the mucous membranes were congested and rumen was mushy. The goat had tachycardia and moderate left side abdominal distension. The peritoneal fluid changes were consistent with peritonitis. The peritonitis was localized to left caudal area of the abdomen but the cause of peritonitis could not be ascertained. The goat recovered successfully after seven days of treatment with antibiotics, anti-inflammatory drug and calcium therapy.
