R Mahesh, A Teja, K Lavanya and G Venkata Naidu
A full term pregnant, non-descriptive goat in its first parity presented to the clinics with a history of anorexia and dullness since 2 days. The owner complained that the doe has not shown any signs of kidding. Pervaginal examination revealed malposture i.e. lateral deviation of head with extended fore limbs into the birth canal. Caesarean section was performed as an emergency by left paramedian approach under local analgesia with 2% lignocaine hydrochloride after unsuccessful attempts of manual correction and traction.
