Abstract:
The study aimed to record the incidence, relieve and outcome of dystocia in cattle by either conservative treatment or caesarean section. A Total of 10 clinical cases of dystocia in cattle were screened in Veterinary College Hospital, Hassan for a period of six months from January 2019 to June 2019. Present study revealed the incidence of foetal cause of dystocia (60%) to be more common than maternal cause of dystocia (40%). Incomplete cervical dilatation (33%) was the most common maternal cause of dystocia followed by pre cervical torsion (10%). Lateral deviation of neck (30%) was the commonest foetal cause of dystocia followed by bilateral hock flexion (20%) and Anasarca (10%).The cases were resolved either by manual traction or by caesarean section and those attended in time resulted in an increased foetal survival rate (60%).
