Abdul Rahman, Sheikh Omar and Saad, Mohd Zamri (1985) Analysis of Case Records of Foetal Deaths in Livestock in Serdang, Selangor. Pertanika, 8 (1). pp. 151-153.
Cases of foetal death in the necropsy records of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science, Universiti Pertanian Malaysia over a 5-year period (1977 -1981) were analysed. Of 119 foetal deaths, 49.0% were abortions, 41.0% stillbirths and 10.0% premature non-viable births. Most of the cases, particularly abortions, (96.5%) remained undiagnosed. There was a remarkable absence of foetal deaths due to infectious diseases.
