A 6.5-year-old female Mudhol hound bitch with a history of vaginal bleeding was brought for breeding advice. Exfoliative vaginal cytology revealed more than 90% of superficial nucleated and a nucleated keratinized cells. However, the bitch was reluctant to show sexual interest in the male dog. Semen was collected from the male dog on alternative days for two days and after evaluation of semen, it is used to inseminate the bitch. At full term, vaginal examination revealed a closed cervix with no impending signs of whelping. Ultrasonography indicated the presence of a single fetus with a feeble heartbeat. An emergency cesarean section was performed and a live female fetus was removed. The dam and puppy recovered uneventfully.
