The present study aimed to determine clinical prevalence of diseases and disorders in cattle and goat at the Upazila Veterinary Hospital, Beanibazar, Sylhet district of Bangladesh from August 2016 to July 2017. A total of 988 clinical cases (683 cattle and 305 goats) were recorded and analyzed. Each clinical case was diagnosed on the basis of general examination, clinical examination, microscopic examination and using common laboratory techniques. The clinical cases were categorized into three categories based on the treatment required (Medical, Gynaeco-obstetrical and Surgical). Among the clinical cases, highest percentage was found for medical (cattle 86.82% and goats 95.41%) followed by surgical (cattle 7.47% and goats 4.26%) and gynaeco-obstetrical (cattle 5.71% and goats 0.33%). Within the medical cases, gastrointestinal nematodiasis (cattle 15.96% and goats 14.75%) and digestive disorder or diarrhea (cattle 13.62% and goats 12.79%) were recorded as main diseases in cattle and goats. On the other hand, gynaeco-obstetrical and surgical cases were found as significant (<3% in each occurrence). The current investigation could be helpful in designing control measures for the prevalent diseases.
