Abstract:
Caesarean section is potentially indicated in case of dystocia when live calf cannot be delivered by mutation and forced extraction. A 2-year-old full term pregnant Punganur heifer was referred with the anamnesis of parturition signs since previous day and water bag ruptured 2 hours before. On obstetrical examination the fetus was in normal presentation (P1), position (P2) and posture (P3) with pedal and suckling reflex. Further vaginal examination revealed large size fetus which cannot accommodate the pelvic inlet for pervaginal delivery. The case was diagnosed as dystocia due to feto-pelvic disproportion. Hence, C-section was performed by lower flank approach. The post-operative therapy was given for cattle with antibiotics, anti-inflammatory for 7 days. The cow and calf had an uneventful recovery.
