Abstract

A case of dystocia due to post-cervical right side uterine torsion with the history of colic and straining since (days) in a pluriparous Mehsana buffalo was presented at the clinics of Veterinary Gynaecology and Obstetrics of Veterinary College, Sardarkrushinagar, Dantiwada, Gujarat, India. Maternal dystocia due to of uterine torsion was diagnosed by history, a clinical sign, per rectal and per vaginal examinations. At first we used modified Schaffer’s method for management of uterine torsion in buffalo. After the three rolls torsion was detorted successfully, but due to insufficient dilated cervix the fetus could not be delivered. Further, the buffalo was treated therapeutically using intravenous administration of 10ml-Dexamethasone®, 75IU-Oxytocin®, 1litre-Normal saline, 1litre-Ringer lactate, 100ml-Calcium borogluconate and 10ml-Valethamate bromide (Epidosin®) was given intramuscularly for treating incomplete cervical dilation(ICD). However, the buffalo could not responded to treatment, therefore finally the caesarean section was performed and a dead male fetus was delivered. Buffalo was post-medicated with various fluids, analgesic, antibiotic and antihistamine parentally apart from intra-uterine pessaries which resulted to recovery of affected Mehsana buffalo within some days.
