Dystocia is defined as difficulty in birth caused by many factors in animals. In small ruminants, it is a very common condition especially in goats. A three year old Black Bengal doe was presented to Veterinary Clinical Complex, WBUAFS, belgachia, Kolkata, with the history of full term pregnancy and distention of the lower abdomen. The animal was showing straining continuously for the past one day without progressing into parturition. Preliminary examinations followed by pervaginal examination identified that the cervix is not dilated and needs caesarian section. The doe was sedated by giving intra muscular injection of xylazine. Local infiltration of 2% lignocaine hydrochloride gave at the site of incision. Left ventral abdominal coeliotomy was done.
