Abstract:
Ring womb or failure of the cervix to dilate at the time of parturition remains one of the major causes of dystocia in ewes. An adult dumba (Fat rumped) ewe in her second parity was referred to the Veterinary Clinical Complex, Post Graduate Institute of Veterinary Education and Research (PGIVER), Jaipur with a history of distension of the udder and delivery straining with no signs of progression in the labour from last 48 hours. On radiographic examination, the presence of one full term foetus was observed. On external examination, an oedematous vulva with the slight vaginal discharge was observed. Slight elevated rectal temperature with a normal respiration rate was recorded. On per vaginal examination, the external os of the cervix was felt hardened and only one finger dilation was observed. As the ewe failed to respond to the drug therapy and narrowed diameter of the birth canal, there was no possibility for vaginal delivery. A dead foetus was delivered by caesarean section under local anaesthesia. The ewe recovered uneventfully without any complications.
