 ABSTRACT

Dystocia in buffaloes has been traced back to 1928 in India and nowadays caesarean section is the routine treatment at referral hospitals for relieving dystocia in buffaloes. The dilemma of poor survival and fertility rate associated with caesarean section has stormed the minds of researchers since long time. Dystocia and its treatment procedures are potent stressors and higher cortisol levels have been observed in dystocia affected buffaloes. Vitamin C role as an antioxidant is well documented in literature and treatment with vitamin C reduces plasma cortisol in buffaloes. Survival rate following relief of dystocia by caesarean section appears to be slightly better following administration of vitamin C.

Key words: Buffaloes, Dystocia, Caesarean section, Vitamin C and survival rate.
