Abstract A Kangeyam cow aged 7 years weighing about 255 kg was presented to the TVCC, Namakkal with the history of inappetance, passing pellet dung, suspending rumination and colic signs since four months. Clinical examination revealed absence of rumination with reduced rumen motility and normal consistency. Rectal examination revealed empty rectum with caecal dilatation.

The physiological parameters recorded were Within the normal limits indicating that the animal was apparently healthy.
