Abstract

The present article describes a case report of acute and fatal generalized peritonitis in a cow. The peritonitis was diagnosed on peritoneal fluid examination and abdominal ultrasonography. The important clinical signs were anorexia, reduced milk yield, vaginal pain and abdominal pain, fever and diarrhoea. On clinical examination, the peculiar finding was consistent pain on palpation of the caudal ventral abdominal quadrant on the right side and such pain response had not been reported in cattle. The peritonitis was ascribed to probable faulty intrauterine medication.
