The urinary fractional clearance of phosphorus was highly elevated (40.2%), While the haematological and serum biochemistry revealed no disturbance in Ca and P ratio. Based on these ndings, the case was diagnosed as miller’s / big head disease. The horse was treated with tricalcium phosphate, calcium carbonate, limestone and mineral mixture for three months and improvement was noticed during the course of the treatment.
