Hydrometra is one of the causes of infertility in goats and this condition is also called as pseudo pregnancy or cloud burst. A primiparous non-descript doe aged two and half years was presented to Referral veterinary polyclinic (Veterinary Gynaecology and Obstetrics section) of the Indian Veterinary Research Institute, Izatnagar with distended abdomen and  history of breeding five months back. On ventral abdominal palpation and per-vaginal examination, no any fetal structures or palpable mass was felt. All the vital parameters were within the normal range. Ultrasonographic examination revealed the presence of anechoic fluid occupying the entire uterus and fetal structures as well as placentomes were absent. The condition was diagnosed as hydrometra. Two doses of Vetmate® Inj. (Cloprostenol- Synthetic Prostaglandin F2α 250 µg / mL) 125 µg each were given intramuscularly (IM) at 12 days interval. Draining of uterine fluids was observed 3 days after first dose of Vetmate® injection and animal recovered uneventfully.
