This paper reports the clinical findings, the results of diagnostic imaging, the medical management, and the results of necropsy of a 2 year old Arabian mare suffering from jejuno-jejunal intussusception. Determining clinical parameters for the in-live diagnosis were the characteristic bull's eye appearance of a part of the small intestine at ultrasonography, tubular structures found at transrectal palpation and the abnormal peritoneal fluid obtained by abdominocentesis.
