Abstract:
The present case reports the handling and management of uterine prolapse in a 8 years old pluriparous cow suffering from uterine prolapse presented at Teaching Veterinary Clinical Complex, College of Veterinary Sci & AH, DSVCKV, Durg, Chhattisgarh. Just after five hours of delivering a live female calf, the cow developed prolapse of uterus. The animal was in lateral recumbency with extended legs and whole prolapsed mass was soiled with dirt and straw. Due to inflammation the prolapse mass was swollen, edematous and lacerated specially at the carbuncular areas. Clinical observation indicated rapid and weak pulse, and respiration and congested mucus membrane and continuous straining was seen Under caudal epidural anaesthesia, the mass was relocated using the conventional method. Satin Ribbon was a successful suture material for a modified Buhner's procedure that retained the prolapsed mass in the cow. There were no complications or deformities of vulvar area. After administration of supportive medications for the subsequent seven to eight days, the cow gradually recovered and showed no evidence of a prolapsed mass hanging out of the vulva.
