A crossbred Holstein Frisian cow was treated by local veterinarian for induction of parturition due to fetal death with Vetmate® (cloprostenol) and Dexona® (Dexamethasone) but failed to deliver the fetus and referred to Veterinary Clinical Complex (LUVAS, Hisar). Thereafter a combination of five drugs e.g. Prostaglandin, dexamethasone, valethamate bromide, estrogen and calcium-magnesium boro-gluconate was given to the animal and cervix dilated completely. A macerated fetus was delivered by forced traction and animal recovered successfully.

Key words: Cow, Estradiol, Incomplete cervical dilatation, Maceration, Prostaglandin.
