This study investigates reticulo-phrenic adhesion in four buffaloes through clinical assessments, laparotomy, radiography, and ultrasonography. Clinical manifestations included anorexia, mucus-coated dung, dehydration, and left flank distension. Vital signs were normal, and hematological tests revealed elevated neutrophil and reduced lymphocyte counts. Radiographs displayed soft tissue bands between the reticulum and diaphragm, while ultrasonography revealed an abnormal crescent-shaped reticulum lacking smooth contour and motility. Local anesthesia-assisted exploratory laparo-rumenotomy confirmed moderate reticulo-phrenic adhesions. The study concludes that ultrasonography and radiography are effective diagnostic tools for diagnosis of reticulo-phrenic adhesions in bovines.
