Abstract: A four years old Jersey cross bred cow was brought to the Large Animal Surgery unit, Veterinary Clinical Complex, VCRI, Namakkal with a history of growth of the right lower mandible and gums including incisors for the past week which disrupted the feeding habit of the animal. Examination of animal revealed tumour growth at the mandiblular incisors as odontoma. Radiographic examination reveals the extent of bone involvement as osteolytic changes are observed. Surgical excision of tumour growth was carried out under bilateral mental nerve block and local infiltration of 2% lignocaine. Post operatively animal was maintained with antibiotics, anti-inflammatory and potassium permanganate solution was advised for oral cavity irrigation with liquid feed. The postoperative routine makes the animal good aesthetic appearance and successful management.
