Abstract

A case of dystocia with lateral deviation of head was reported in 3years old sheep. Both forelegs were protruding from vagina, ewe was active and alert. Fetus was removed by subcutaneous fetotomy. Post-operative care included administration of antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs along with vitamin supplementation and intra uterine therapy. There was an uneventful recovery. It is concluded that partial fetotomy appears to be a great tool for fetal delivery when the fetus cannot be repelled into the uterus.
