Abstract

A crossbred cow 80 days pregnant with a history of pus discharge from the vagina was presented for treatment. The cow was diagnosed with foetal maceration and surgery was performed in a standing position by laparo-hysterotomy by giving an incision on the upper right flank. A fetal mass without fetal bones was removed by surgery.
