Abstract | A four years old high yielding variety goat was admitted at Teaching Veterinary Hospital (TVH) in CVASU with the history of prolong gestation period, distended ventral abdominal wall and excessive enlargement of the udder. The doe exhibited anorexia, discomfort with dull and depression. Physical examination and abdominal ballottement were ensured that the extremities and head of the fetus were easily palpable in swollen udder but movement of the fetus was not found. Both the hind limbs of doe were seen to be extended laterally due to distended abdomen. As the gestation period has prolonged and there was no sign of parturition, so it was decided to perform caesarean section for delivering the fetuses and subsequently herniorrhaphy. Post operative care was given to the affected goat and it was recovered after fourteen days. So final recommendation is that after fulfillment of gestation period, any types abnormalities in ventral abdominal region or excessive enlargement of udder contact with the veterinarian for its diagnosis, correction and quick recovery.
