Abstract:
Dystocia is a rare condition encountered in cats; it is the failure of the queen to expel the foetus at parturition through the birth canal without assistance. A two-year-old Persian cat was presented with a history of weakness, anorexia and eviction of a dead foetus 36 h ago. On clinical examination, the cat was severely dehydrated, weak and hypothermic. Radiographic examination revealed the presence of four foetuses, and sonographic examination confirmed the foetuses as nonviable. Since the per vaginal delivery was impossible, an emergency C-section was performed under general anaesthesia and the animal had an uneventful recovery, and sutures were removed on the 10th day. The present case report suggests that delayed cases of dystocia due to partial primary uterine inertia in cats can be successfully managed by caesarean section.
