A fty days old male Labrador Retriever puppy was presented with the history of vomiting, anorexia, hematochezia and hanging of a cylindrical mass from anus. Based on the clinical examination the condition was diagnosed as enterocolic intussusception. Midline celiotomy was performed and intussusception was manually reduced. Preoperative administration of Butorphanol tartrate prevented the reoccurrence of intussusception and was reported.
