Abstract:

The present study was conducted to analyze the consequences of cesarean section (c-section) in terms of survivability and future fertility in bovine. The data from 304 veterinarians working at Civil Veterinary Hospitals, Punjab who performed 128 c-sections (Cattle: 70, buffalo: 58) was collected through a specially designed questionnaire and analyzed. A high overall survival rate was observed where indication of c-section was pelvic fracture/abnormal pelvis (67.7 %) followed by incomplete cervical dilatation (66.7 %) and fetal monsters (63.6 %). The overall survival rate in cesarean operated animals was 65.6 per cent. About 18 per cent cesarean operated animals with < 12 h duration of dystocia conceived, however, none of the animals conceived when dystocia was prolonged for > 12 h. In conclusion, survival and future fertility rates in cesarean operated buffaloes can be improved if time elapsed since occurrence of dystocia is less and a decision to operate the animal is taken earlier.
