OMIA 001119-89462 : Abomasum, displaced in Bubalus bubalis
In other species: cattle , sheep Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown Considered a defect: yes Cross-species summary: The abomasum is the fourth stomach in ruminants, often called the "true" stomach because of its structural and functional homology with the stomach of non-ruminants. Soon after parturition, the abomasum sometimes becomes distended either to the left (left abomasal displacement) or to the right (right abomasal displacement), resulting in anorexia and acetonaemia.
