A Gircowaged 5 years was referred for the treatment with a history of anorexia. On investigation, it was reported that the animal was not taking feed since 10 days of its last calving. The animal was reported to be treated with various antibiotics and fluids without positive response. On clinical examination, the temperature was slightly elevated; tachycardia was noticed and sluggish in respiration. On examination of the udder, the left hind quarter was swollen and the milk was reddish in colour and blood mixed creamy in nature. All the other quarters were apparently normal and the milk was normal in colour and consistency. Samples such as blood smear, blood serum, milk were collected and sent to Central University Laboratory for bacteriological and parasitological examination. Among the samples screened the serum was found positive for Leptospira serovar: Tarassovi. Accordingly, the animal was treated with Amoxycillin for 5 days and the animal has recovered uneventfully. The incidence of rare case of Leptospira species affected mastitis was discussed in detail.
