Abstract: The current investigation was conducted for pathological studies of liver affections in small ruminants carcasses (12 sheep and 5 goats) affected with gastrointestinal tract disorders brought to Department of Veterinary Pathology, LUVAS, Hisar during the period of August, 2019 to January, 2020 for the purposes of post-mortem examination.
