Clinical and physical examinations revealed recumbency, depression, congested mucosa, posterior paresis, rectal prolapse, involuntary defecation and urination, no sensation to needle prick on both hind legs but front legs showed sensation although weak. Immediately animal was treated with fluid and electrolytes, corticosteroids, antibiotics, vitamin B complex and other supportive medications.
