Abstract

A year-6-month-old Jersey cow was presented to Veterinary Clinics Complex (VCC) DGCN COVAS, CSKHPKV, Palampur with a history of anorexia, decreased urination, defecation, and ingestion of Lantana foliage for a week. After the death of the animal, necropsy examination has revealed yellowish discoloration of the liver as a result of bile stagnation, cholecystitis, gelatinization of cardiac fat with yellow discoloration of almost all the internal organs including the peritoneal wall and subcutaneous tissue. The histopathological examination has shown profound bile duct hyperplasia, hemosiderin deposition, and extrahepatic bile pigment accumulation in association with necro-hemorrhagic lesions in the liver. The present case recorded the death in a Jersey cow as a result of Lantana camara induced liver damage.
