A pregnant heifer graded Murrah buffalo in its full term was presented with cervico-vaginal prolapse. Severe lacerations were noticed on the presenting mass. The exposed mucous membranes and the vulva became very edematous. These factors prevent the return of prolapsed mass. Caesarean section was performed at left lower flank under local infiltration anesthesia as per the standard procedure and a male live calf was delivered by gentle traction. The lacerated areas on the prolapsed mass were sutured with chromic catgut (No.3), and then the mass was reduced and replaced into its normal position. The animal was treated with antibiotic and anti-inflammatory drugs as per recommended dose. After treatment the animal was recovered uneventfully.
