  1. H Pearson and
  2. HR Denny


The clinical features of uterine rupture in 26 cows are reviewed. In 12 animals, the foetus was still mainly or entirely within the uterus but in the remaining 14 it was displaced into the peritoneal cavity. Apparent predisposing causes suggest that the condition is usually secondary to some other form of dystocia.
