Abstract:
A Gir cow of 13 years old and 8.5 months pregnant was presented to Cattle Breeding Farm with cervico-vaginal prolapse. In this case, exposed part was swollen, reddish pink and lacerated. The cow was restrained on sternal recumbancy and epidural anaesthesia (2% lignocaine hydrochloride) was administered. The prolapsed mass was made aseptic by washing with 2% potassium permanganate solution and was set in-situ in the pelvic cavity. The animal was kept on antibiotic, anti-inflammatory and anti-histaminic drugs besides fluid therapy for three days. The prolapsed mass was repositioned following the standard procedure and a modified Buhner’s technique, using sterile cotton thread as a suture material, was applied parallel to vulval apart from vagina beneath the skin to keep it in position. In the cow, following treatment no complications and disfigurement of the vulvar area was noticed. A successful therapeutic management of prepartum cervico-vaginal prolapse in a Gir cow is discussed.
