A three-year-old primiparous Saanen goat was presented to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital, College of Veterinary Medicine, Sudan University of Science and Technology for pregnancy diagnosis. Transabdominal ultrasonography was conducted using B-mode real time scanner (Pie medical Easote, The Netherlands) equipped with switchable frequency (3.5-5 MHz) curvilinear transducer. Ultrasonographic findings revealed severely distended hypoechoic fluid filled compartmentalized uterus. Fetal parts and placentomes were not detected. The doe was diagnosed as having hydrometra and treated with intramuscular injection of Cloprostenol. The animal was returned to estrus 34 hrs post treatment. Rescanning 60 days post breeding revealed pregnancy with triplets which were confirmed at delivery. In conclusion ultrasonography was found to be a reliable and rapid method for diagnosis of hydrometra.
