Abstract:
A fifteen days old lamb was presented with the history of voiding small quantity of faeces through vaginal opening with tenesmus since birth. Clinical examination revealed slight abdominal distension, absence of anal opening and bulged in the perianal region along with faeces in the vaginal opening. Based on history and clinical findings, the case was tentatively diagnosed as a rectovaginal fistula with atresia ani. Surgical correction was done under caudal epidural analgesia with lignocaine hydrochloride (2%). The animal recovered uneventfully without any serious complications.
