E-mail: email@example.com The present study aimed to detail the clinical outcome in seven pregnant cows affected with abomasal displacement. We diagnosed six cases of right abomasal displacement and one case of left abomasal displacement (DAE), affecting six crossbred cows (85.7%) and one Holstein cow (14.3%). Gestational age ranged from the second (2/7), fifth (1/7), sixth (2/7) and above the eighth month (2/7). Five animals underwent pyloro-omentopexy, while two animals were treated clinically. All cows were discharged from clinic with regard to the resolution of the disease. Five cows (71.4%) delivered healthy calves, while two (28.6%) aborted during hospitalization. Thus, it is assumed that abomasal displacement does not represent a severe disorder for pregnancy maintenance when diagnosed and treated early.
