The present paper reports the successful treatment of cervico-vaginal prolapsed and dystocia due to incomplete cervical dilation in buffalo. Eight-year-old Surti buffalo in fourth parity was presented with history of full term gestation, unproductive straining and severe degree cervico- vaginal prolapse form past 24 hrs. The cervico-vaginal prolapse was repositioned and per-vaginal examination discovered one finger cervical dilation whereas foetus was in anterior presentation examined by per rectal examination. The buffalo was treated for incomplete cervical dilation with dexamethasone 40 mg, cloprostenol sodium 500 μg and intravenous valethamate bromide 80 mg with periodical fathering of cervix. There was cervical dilation and dead fetus was removed with slight traction. The cervico-vaginal prolapse as well as incomplete cervical dilation during parturition in Surti buffalo was successfully managed.
