In present case, a mongoose was presented with teared skin, muscle and peritoneum of ventral region and evisceration of intestine due to dog bite. Clinical examination revealed as reddish, painful and echymotic skin around the eviscerated organ without any perforation in the intestines. Emergency surgical management was done by restraining the animal using proper anaesthetic protocol with proper post-operative management and the recovery was uneventful.
