A cross bred Jersey cow presented to the Large Animal Surgery Unit of Madras Veterinary College Teaching Hospital with the history of swelling in the left ventral abdomen. Clinical examination, ultra sound examination and exploratory laparotomy revealed herniation and hernia repair was attempted. The size of hernia ring was 7.5 cm diameter and the organs herniated were ventral sac of rumen, intestine and omentum, kelotomy was performed, organs were repositioned and the herniated ring was closed by overlapping sutures. The incisional site was reinforced with fascia and the skin was apposed with interrupted suture pattern. The present communication deals with surgical management of rumino-entero-omentocele (ventral hernia) in a cow.
