Abstract:

Dystocia or difficulty in parturition is a commonly seen in cattle and buffaloes among the domestic animals. The condition can occur as result of numerous factors. This condition when it occurs in a heifer, foetomaternal disproportion becomes the main causative factor. Such conditions often need a caesarean section in order to save the life of the dam. A two year old cross bred holstein friesian heifer presented with the condition of dystocia due to foeto maternal disproportion and left shoulder flexion was subjected to caesarean section. Following surgery the dam was maintained on antibiotics, fluids and other supportive therapy. The animal was reported to have recovered uneventfully.
