A study was carried out to determine whether our local Trema species, Trema orientalis, was toxic to goats. Three goats were administered Trema orientalis paste orally via stomach tube at 18 g/kg body weight three times daily for seven days. Clinical signs observed included depression, with frequent lying down and head carried low, muscle twitching, shivering, paddling movement when disturbed, and watery diarrhoea. On the 7th day of the experiment, the three goats were humanely slaughtered and a complete necropsy was performed. Livers were enlarged with accentuated lobular pattern, hemorrhagic and jaundiced. Lungs were congested, oedematous and emphysematous. Cerebral blood vessels were very prominent. Microscopically, in the liver there were cetrilobular to bridging hepatic necrosis, hemorrhages and vacuolation. In the lungs, there were severe pulmonary congestion, edema and emphysema. Blood vessels of the kidney and brain were markedly distended with erythrocytes and lined by hypertrophied endothelial cells.
