A case of severe fasciolosis in a suckler beef cattle is described. A four year old cow was admitted into clinics because of depression and reduced appetite for 10 days. The main clinical findings were fever, jaundice and reduced reticulorumen contractions. A final diagnosis of fasciolosis was based on biochemical, haematological, and faecal parasitological examinations. The cow was successfully treated with albendazole and supportive therapy. The administration of albendazole was suggested for the rest of the animals in the herd.
