Conquering uterine inertia and uterine rupture in a pregnant Rottweiler canine: Successful caesarean section approach

Author(s): Sujata Jinagal, Krishan Yadav, Krishna Nand Bansal and Renu Sharma
Abstract:
This case study describes the successful management of a one-year-seven-month-old Rottweiler she-dog experiencing dead foetus form adhesion with mesentery after uterine rupture during her first parity. The she-dog was presented with a history of 60 days of pregnancy and exhibited a slight greenish-black vaginal discharge for the last two days. Diagnostic examinations, including abdominal radiography and ultrasonography, revealed the presence of four dead foetuses within the uterus. The she-dog’s vital signs, including temperature and pulsation, were abnormal, and hematologic parameters were not within normal range. Initially, medical treatment involving the administration of Calcium Sandoz 10%, Oxytocin 5 IU, and Dextrose 25% was employed to induce parturition, but no response was observed after 24 hours. Consequently, a caesarean section was performed, revealing multiple sites of uterine rupture and bleeding, along with necrosis of the mesentery. Adhesions between three foetuses and the mesentery were noted, while one foetus remained in the uterus. The she-dog underwent an ovariohysterectomy and removal of the necrotic mesentery. Postoperative care was provided for five days, and the she-dog recovered without complications.
