A 8 years old graded Murrah buffalo during the eighth month of gestation was presented with the history of sudden, progressive and symmetrical distension of abdomen during the previous 10 to 12 days. The buffalo underwent a medical termination of pregnancy with Inj. Cloprostenol Sodium and Inj. Dexamethasone. At 96 h post-treatment, rupture of fetal membrane resulted in gushing out of more than 100 to 120 litres of amber coloured allantoic fluid from the uterus. A dead female fetus was delivered by gentle traction. The animal was treated with oral ecbolics and parenteral administration of fluids and antibiotics for 5 consecutive days. The buffalo had an uneventful recovery.
