Abstract: Lanatana camara is a noxious weed found in tropical and subtropical regions including south East Asia. A bull was brought to Teaching Veterinary Clinical Complex, C.V. Sc., A.A.U. from North Guwahati area with a history of ingestion of leaves of this noxious plant showing signs of intoxication viz. diarrhea, weakness, liver damage and photosensitization. The liver enzyme levels were also recorded to be very high. Based on history, clinical signs and biochemical parameters, it was diagnosed to be a case of Lantana camara poisoning the bull was treated with supportive therapy and provided proper care and management for recovery. Results revealed that post treatment with supportive therapy, there was significant improvement in the condition of the affected animal with symptoms receding and the animal gradually returning to normalcy. From this case study it can be inferred that proper and timely supportive treatment is effective in ameliorating signs of Lantana camara poisoning. However, preventive measures should always be put in place which can significantly help in averting the occurrence of poisoning.
