A Shorthorn cow, approximately twelve years old, was admitted to Stange Memorial Clinic with a history of indigestion and periodic bloating during the past two weeks. Symptomatic treatment and relief of the bloat by passing a stomach tube was administered by the ambulatory clinic staff which had previously attended the cow. She would eat and appear normal but then would soon bloat again and refuse to eat. At no time was an elevated temperature observed.
