Abstract | An eight month, French Pitbull (weighing 10.5kg) bitch was presented at VCC, DUVASU, Mathura with the history of vaginal prolapse for 4 days. The Animal was 52 days pregnant. Transabdominal ultrasonography revealed the presence of live fetuses as indicated by heartbeats of fetuses. Prolapse mass was edematous and hard. Reduction and reposition of prolapsed mass was done. Prolapse re-occurred at 62nd days of pregnancy. X-ray examination revealed a minimum of 7 fetuses. Prolapse mass and narrow birth canal hindered normal parturition. Cesarean section was performed and 9 fetuses (8 live and 1 dead) were delivered and prolapse mass was reposited using nylon in horizontal mattress suture pattern with tubing on both sides of vulvar region.
