Abstract:
A Holstein Friesian cow with an ongoing 276 days gestation was presented at Veterinary Clinical Complex, College of Veterinary Science, Khanapara, Guwahati with a history of restlessness, inappetance and frequent lying down and rising up. Clinical findings included tachypnic (35/minute), tachycardic (80 bpm) and 101.2F body temperature. Per-rectal examination suggested of right side pre-cervical uterine torsion of more than 180. Sharma’s Modified Schaffer’s detorsion method was successfully executed in two rolling and subsequently administered Dexona, Pragma and Epidosin to induce parturition. Despite the induction, no signs of parturition were observed after 24 hours. Consequently, Caeserean Section was performed and a live female calf was delivered. The cow and the calf were reported to be recovered and healthy after one week of observation. Thereby, it may be concluded that combination of both detorsion method and surgical intervention in such reported cases are found to be favourable with high success rates considering the condition of the dam after the exposure and the degree of torsion are minimal.
