Abstract:
An 18 days old female Sahiwal calf with dribbling of urine from umbilicus region was presented. On clinical examination, a lump like structure were seen and palpated at the umbilicus along with loss of hairs around the umbilical region. Physiological parameters were within normal range. The haematological parameters observed were Hemoglobin (Hb) 10.3 g/dl, total leucocytic count 16.19 m/mm3 and thrombocyte count 971 m/mm3. There was decrease in hematocrit value i.e. 23.0%. Biochemical analysis of urine revealed pH 7, specific gravity 1.020, protein 100 mg/dl, ketone 5 mg/dl and urobilinogen 0.2 mg/dl. Retrograde cystography with Iohexol @ 10 ml/kg body weight was performed by passing an infant feeding tube (#6) from vagina towards the urinary bladder. Surgical resection of the persistent urachus was done under the anesthetic combination of Diazepam @ 0.5 mg/kg and ketamine HCl @ 5 mg/kg body weight. After 60 days of surgical correction retrograde contrast urethrography and cystography reveals the obliteration of the cord but there was an occurrence of umbilical hernia which was again managed surgically.
