Abstract

Acute death of 1-month-old calves on pasture that were accidentally exposed to an oil/antifreeze mix were investigated. Clinical signs were not observed and necropsy findings were non-specific. Histological diagnosis of calcium oxalate nephrosis with concurrent tubulointerstitial suppurative nephritis was supported by culture. Ethylene glycol exposure was confirmed via analytical methods.
