A 7-year-old burro jack was examined because of recurrent rectal prolapse and severe cough. The prolapse was reduced manually and a cough associated with bronchopneumonia responded to antimicrobial therapy. The rectal prolapse recurred and again was reduced manually. During exploratory celiotomy a cystic calculus was identified and removed. Severe protracted cough and cystic calculus were thought to be contributing factors to recurrent rectal prolapse in this burro.
