Abstract | Vaginal prolapse is a common obstetrical disorder for dairy cows throughout the country during 3rd trimester of gestation. But there is no available published report on it in Bangladesh. A six years old HF cross was admitted to Teaching Veterinary Hospital (TVH) in Chittagong Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (CVASU) with a history of 7 months pregnancy and hanging mass outside the genital opening. By physical examination, it was confirmed as vaginal prolapse. After that, blood sample was collected to know different parameters of serum e.g. calcium, phosphorus, magnesium etc. The prolapsed mass was corrected manually and Buhner’s suture was applied parallel to vulva apart from vagina beneath the skin to keep it in position. The cow was followed for next 2 months. There found no evidence of recurrence and then it delivered a healthy female calf successfully without any complication. The aim of the report is to show successful correction of vaginal prolapse with its management by quick diagnosis and immediate action.
