  Congenital anomaly by autosomal recessive genes has been implicated as the main etiology of contracted flexor tendons in musculoskeletal deformities of new borne calves. Surgical intervention of this case revealed that ankylosis was caused by wrong origination and insertion of malformed ulnaris lateralis muscle. A stay in the form of splints was placed throughout the limb. Plasters of Paris were then applied to the whole length of the limb to enhance stability. The surgical site was fenestrated to allow aeration and dressing, the overall result of the procedure was encouraging. After 7 weeks, a second surgery was performed to correct the bilateral contracted flexor tendon of the carpal joint. This was achieved by deep digital flexor tendon tenotomy of the carpal joint and placing a fiber glass cast on both joints.

  The correction of enterolithiaisis in this case report was carried out by manual traction as the“stone” was lodged proximal to the ileo-cecal junction. This is a rare “fit” as the condition is mostly managed only surgically. Under mild sedation and with proper restraint using a crutch in a standing position, rectal enema alongside massive lubrication using a rectal lubricant was employed to manipulate the stone until it was successfully removed. The stone weighed 0.75 kg and its measurement length and breadth were 7.5 and 4.5 inches, respectively. Mild bleeding that resulted was managed by applying digital pressure on the affected part of the rectum and intravenous administration of vitamin K injection at 5 mg kg–1 was given. Animal was placed on maize bran and other less fiber diet for 5 days to allow proper healing of the rectal area to take place. The animal recovered fully 14 days after correction.
