Cattle presented with the history of digestive disorders along with lymphadenitis, anaemia and pyrexia to the large animal medicine unit of VCRI, Tirunelveli during the time period from January 2016 to December 2016 were taken for the present study. 40 cases were found to have such ailments. 21 animals among them were found to be positive for Theileria annulata. Out of which, dung samples of 12 animals showed positive result for occult blood test, suggestive of ulcerated abomasum and intestine. Liptak test, radiography, ultrasound examination, haematological analysis, peritoneal fluid analysis was done to rule out other etiologies. Based on the results of these diagnostic aids, twelve animals were found to have peritonitis. The affected twelve animals were divided into two groups. One group was treated with regular Buparvaquonone therapy. Along with Buparvaquonone, the animals in the other group were treated for septic peritonitis and abomasal ulcers. Efficacy of the treatment were compared with normal animals.
