Abstract

This report presents complicated cervico-vaginal eversion in two Murrah buffalo cows from the same ranch following normal calving. Both eversions occurred within 48 h after parturition, but the owner neglected the cases and only requested veterinary assistance after 15 days. The more severely affected was an 8 years old multiparous buffalo cow with extensive laceration of the vaginal mucosa exposing a necrotic urinary bladder wall, and also a necrotic rectal prolapse. The second one was a 3 years old primiparous buffalo cow presenting the entire vaginal mucosa and cervix protrude through the vulvar lips with entrapment of the urinary bladder. According to these findings, vaginal eversions were classified in grade 4b and 3, respectively. The delay by the rancher in seeking specialized veterinary care severely worsened the prognosis in these cases. Vaginal eversion must be treated as a reproductive emergency and producers should also be educated to seek veterinary assistance as fast as possible.
