The aim of this report is to describe in detail the gross pathological findings in a two year female Labrador which was presented for necropsy with a history of collapse during whelping. Necropsy examination revealed a gravid near-term uterus with distended horns and a dead emphysematous fetus in the abdominal cavity. The left horn was twisted on its axis (360â—¦) with a tear of about 2cm x 3 cm. The left horn was dark red black in color and on incision had two emphysematous fetuses, hemorrhages and blood clots. The right horn was pink and edematous and had a dead emphysematous fetus with serosanguineous fluid.
