A one year old female non-descript goat was presented with history of kidding signs and water bag ruptured 12 hours before presentation of the case. Vaginal examination revealed narrow pelvis and left lateral deviation of head. Attempts made to relive the foetus were failed and C-section was done under sedation using midazolam at the dose of 0.2 mg/kg and tramadol at the dose of 2 mg/kg in combination with regional anaesthesia inverted “L” block by left lower flank laparotomy. A male dead foetus and placenta was removed manually. Uterus and laparotomy incision closed routinely and the animal made an uneventful recovery. Left flank incision facilitated better exteriorization of uterus without damaging the adjacent visceral organs. The anaesthetic protocol employed by combination of sedative drugs tramadol and midazolam along with regional anaesthesia using lignocaine 2% (inverted ‘L’) provided pain free surgical environment and early ambulation of the patient.
