The study presents a case of dystocia due to breech presentation in a 7 year old cow brought to the Teaching Veterinary Clinical Complex of International Institute of Veterinary Education and Research (IIVER), Rohtak, Haryana, with a complaint that the animal had been in labour for over 24 hours. According to the owner, water bags were presented and ruptured on the previous day and since then animal was straining, gestational period was 9 months, animal was in 3rd parity, feed and water intake was normal. Per-vaginal examination was carried out and diagnosis of dystocia due to breech presentation was made as evidenced by presence of tail of the fetus in the birth canal along with bilateral hip flexion in the posterior presentation. It was impossible to deliver the calf per vaginally due to bilateral hip flexion, so caesarean section was performed. Following local anaesthesia using 2% lidocaine hydrochloride, Ventrolateral oblique incision was made on the left side and dead fetus was delivered. Post-surgical recovery was completed and the cow was discharged on the same day.
