Abstract:
The rupture of the bladder is the most common cause of uroperitoneum. The classical clinical sign is a pear-shaped enlargement of the abdomen accompanied by anorexia. A 7-month old calf was presented with a history of anuria and anorexia since last 5-7 days. On examination, the classical sign of uroperitoneum i.e. pear-shaped abdomen was recorded. On abdomonocentesis urine was collected and that directed the case for the uroperitoneum. The emergency surgical treatment was performed under proper asepsis and regional anaesthesia accompanied by xylazine as sedative. During surgery multiple calculi were revealed in the urethra which were removed and followed by the suturing of the bladder and the cavity. Post-operative treatment was given to the calf with amoxicillin, flumixin meglumine, fluid therapy and daily antiseptic dressing. After 10-12 hrs of the surgery, calf passed the urine from urethra and started feeding on his own after 2-3 days post treatment.
