A 10 days old Madras Red male lamb was observed with complaints of absence of defecation, abdominal distension, discomfort and tenesmus. On examination, it had been observed that there was no anal opening. It was diagnosed as atresia ani, which is a failure of development of the anal opening. Surgical treatment is the only course of action. This paper reports a case of male sheep with atresia ani and also gives the surgical procedure adopted. The culling of sire, dam and the affected animal is suggested to prevent the occurrence of this defect in future.

Keywords: Atresia ani, congenital defect, Madras Red lamb
