Abstract

One hundred and eighteen cattle suspected of jaundice and slaughtered in Hyogo prefecture were examined for parameters of diagnostic screening of serious jaundice, revealing that brownish urine, yellowish conjunctivamucosa and reddish critical hepatitis, tar-like bile, brownish bladder urine and higherlevels of urine bilirubin were useful for the screening. Blood samples from the cardiac ventricle taken after slaughtering showed lower levels of total-bilirubin than those sampled before and during slaughtering.
