A four year old female jersey crossbred heifer pregnant about 7 to 8 months, weighing 321 kg was presented with the anamnesis of anorexia, colic signs, absence of rumination and complete cessation of defecation since 3 days. Based on the clinical and ultrasonographic examination the case was tentatively diagnosed as intestinal obstruction. Right flank exploratory laparotomy was performed under general anaesthesia and confirmed as intussusception. Enterectomy and end-end enteroanastomosis was performed as per the standard procedure. Post operatively the animal was maintained with intravenous fluids and antibiotic, analgesics and supportive therapy for three days. The cow passed dung 12 hours after surgery and recovered uneventfully.
