A high yielding variety (HYV) Holstein Friesian cow was died after five days of delivery reported at Teaching Veterinary Hospital (TVH) in Chittagong Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (CVASU) with unknown reasons. It was diagnosed by taking Ante mortem and Post mortem examination history. The reported cow was died by repeated and continuous intravenous use of calcium and ceftriaxone. So this report leads us about the safe practices about the simultaneously administration of intravenous calcium and ceftriaxone in recumbent dairy cow just after parturition to treat metabolic conditions like milk fever or parturient paresis. It is recommended not to use the ceftriaxone in combination with intravenous calcium therapy in post parturient dairy animals.
