Caecal dilatation and displacement in sheep
  1. H Waldeland


Clinical observations and treatment of eight sheep and post mortem findings in eight other sheep with caecal dilatation and displacement are described. The results show that the prognosis after surgical correction is very good, even in severe cases. The seasonal distribution indicates that lush pastures, or the change from either indoor feeding with hay or grass silage and concentrates, or from grass with a relatively high fibre content to grass in a vigorous growth, may be of aetiological importance.
