This report describes the successful surgical management of a street female dog presented with vaginal prolapse of approximately 20 cm. Radiography revealed two foetal skeletons in the prolapsed mass and three in the caudal abdomen. It was diagnosed as vaginal prolapse with one gravid uterine horn in it and cervix closed. The animal was operated for emergency caesarean section and ovario-hysterectomy under general anaesthesia. The dog recovered uneventfully from anaesthesia and surgery and shifted to its home street after 10 days

Key Words: vaginal prolapse, gravid uterus, ovario-hysterectomy
