Abstract:

The present case reports the successful management of dystocia in nondescript ewe due to conjoined twin monster foetus. A full term pregnant ewe in its second parity was brought to the veterinary dispensary Ayyanaroothu, Tutucorin with a history of abdominal straining and not able to deliver the young one. Per vaginal examination revealed presence of a foetus in anterior presentation with left shoulder flexion. Shoulder flexion was corrected and a dead monocephalic conjoined twin foetus was relieved by gentle traction. The ewe was treated with broad spectrum antibiotic, anti inflammatory and ecbolic drugs. The ewe recovered uneventfully.
