A 17-year-old purebred Arabian mare was presented with a history of uterine prolapse of 3-hour duration. The case occurred just after expulsion of foetal membranes in a mare aborting during the 7th month of pregnancy. During treatment the uterus was replaced to its normal position following epidural anaesthesia. No vulval sutures were inserted. There was no vaginal discharge during the postoperative period. Rectal examination conducted 5 days later revealed that rapid involution of the uterus occurred.Keywords:
