A non-descript bullock of six years of age and 225 kg of body weight was suffering from left parotid salivary fistula with huge loss of saliva. The loss of saliva was reduced (from 11ml/minute to 5ml/min.) by pre-operative management of housing in silent area as well as withholding of food in addition to the use of antibiotic and other supportive therapy. Under Xylazine (0.1mg/kg I/M) and local infiltration of 2% Lignocaine hydrochloride, following standard surgical protocol, the Stenson’s duct was identified and ligated after infusion of diluted Tincture Iodine into the duct (7mm in diameter) towards the parotid gland. Post-operative follow up with antibiotics, withholding of feed with intravenous and successive oral fluid administration and management for a week hastened the healing and inactivation of the gland. The bullock was able to work normally afterwards.
